JOHANNESBURG - Gauteng Education MEC, Panyaza Lesufi has apologised for mistakenly spotting the old South African flag at the Springboks' semifinal victory.

Lesufi on Sunday posted a picture of Springboks supporters in Japan carrying what seemed to him like the old flag.

He captioned the picture as a spoiler.
