In South Africa, This Player Got 5GB Of Data As His Award For Being Named Man Of The Match

Normally you might expect champagne as a prize but that’s not how things go down in the Rainbow Nation.

Africa is renowned for its slightly unusual man-of-the-match prizes, depending on its leagues’ (or cup’s, in this case) sponsors. 

In Zimbabwe, crates of beer have been dished out to players, while you could grab yourself a pair of sandals in Ghana or a bucket of groceries in Botswana.

But in South Africa, it’s technology – namely with a chunk of mobile data, which is much more useful than it sounds at first. With broadband expensive and often unreliable in the country, many people use their 3/4G mobile data to get a fix – so a handy prize, then, for this lucky Mamelodi Sundowns player. 

Good job Telkom.
