The Springbok captain feels every citizen has a role to play in keeping this winning feeling alive.
Kolisi’s humble background is well documented.
The Zwide-born Bok wants to make a difference where he can and is starting at his former primary school.
“There’s people who’ve been in far worse backgrounds that I come from," he said.
"But I am hoping that guys like me who’ve been there can help make a change, can give better opportunities so the kids have a different pathway like where I come from."
Kolisi is now looking forward to enjoying some downtime after the World Cup whirlwind he and his family have experienced.
