Cape Town - Sports minister Fikile Mbalula clearly remains in the Rugby World Cup spirit despite the Boks having been knocked out of the semi-finals.

South Africa take on Argentina in Friday night's Bronze Final, and Mbalula took to Twitter to show that 'Bok Friday' is still very much a thing for him. 

Mbalula's reaction to the defeat against New Zealand was also one of positivity and he said that the nation had been "represented well". 

So even though the Boks didn't get all the way to the Twickenham final on Saturday, at least they have the approval of the man who labelled Bafana Bafana a 'bunch of losers' in January last year.

Friday night's clash kicks off at 22:00.
