Towards the end of last week, a video went viral that showed veteran Cheetahs prop Schalk Ferreira coming to the aid of a family during a frightening incident.

After first speaking to the man in what appeared to be unsuccessful attempts to talk him down from the car, 39-year-old Ferreira intervenes and drags him off the hood of the car.

It hasn’t taken long for an edit to be made of the video, this time adding in comical commentary of legendary former broadcaster Hugh Bladen.

IT’S NOT THE FIRST TIME A RUGBY STAR HAS COME TO THE RESCUE RECENTLY
In news that went viral last month, Netwerk24 first reported on how Jean de Villiers – who captained the Springbok team on 37 occasions- had grown suspicious of a man who was seemingly slipping items into his pockets before walking out of The Boer & Butcher shop in Paarl on 23 January.
Screenshots from surveillance footage show the 41-year-old – who is still in top shape – running after the suspect, and losing his flip flops in the process, before returning and handing him over to security.
