JOHANNESBURG AFP: Rugby World Cup-winning Springboks have stripped down to their underwear in response to a challenge by scrumhalf Faf de Klerk for South African men to get screened for testicular cancer.

Captain Siya Kolisi, wingers Cheslin Kolbe and Makazole Mapimpi were among players to slip into their speedos and post pictures in their underwear on social media after being screened, in response to the now viral #FafChallenge. “Challenge accepted!.. Early detection = high cure rate,” Kolisi wrote on his Instagram page where he posted a picture of himself sporting South African flag-branded underwear.
