Cape Town - Springbok captain Siya Kolisi received some tips from an unlikely source while preparing for Saturday's Test match against England at Twickenham. 

The Boks are in London preparing for the first of four matches on their end-of-year tour, and on Wednesday they had some down time. 

Video footage emerged on Twitter of Kolisi paying a visit to Arsenal's Emirates Stadium. 

Kolisi can be seen on the pitch interacting with Arsenal's official club mascot, Gunnersaurus. 

The mascot has its own Twitter page and shared a video of its interaction with Kolisi with the caption: "Just giving the Springbok players some tips. No biggie."

The Boks were allowed to spend some time on the pitch before Arsenal's League Cup clash against Blackpool, which they ended up winning 2-1. 

Kick-off at Twickenham on Saturday, meanwhile, is at 17:00 (SA time).
