2019-12-06 08:59

Cape Town - Springbok captain Siya Kolisi has signed deal with rapper Jay-Z's high-profile sports management company, Roc Nation Sports.

Sport24 reported last week that the deal was imminent and it was officially confirmed on Thursday.

"2019 Rugby World Cup Champion. Captain. Symbol of Hope. We’re thrilled to welcome South Africa’s own Siya Kolisi to our family!" the company tweeted.

Kolisi has become a global icon since leading the Springboks to Rugby World Cup glory in Japan in early November.

Late last month, he was invited by English football giants Liverpool to watch a Champions League match at Anfield, while he also appeared on Sky Sports News.

Jay-Z founded Roc Nation Sports in 2013 in partnership with Creative Artists Agency, a prominent talent agency based in Los Angeles.

The company mainly represents athletes in the codes of baseball, American football, basketball and boxing.
