Nelson Mandela's death really had an impact. On the whole world. He was a fantastic man. So I rewatched "Invictus" this weekend and decided to share my favorite moments with you.
On his morning walk, Nelson Madela sees todays paper with the headline: Can he run a country? His guards don't understand that the people are putting Mandela under so much pressure after just one day. Mandela thinks it's a legitimate question.
Mandela makes an appearance at the England-Springboks rugby match. First he greets the players and then walks into the audience to greet them personaly.
Mandela tells the members of the ANC why keeping the Springboks is so important.
Springboks captain Francois Pienaar is invited for tea with Nelson Mandela. Mandela wants to talk to him about rugby and leadership. after the visit Francois thinks Mandela wants the Springboks to win the World Cup.
Mandela requested for the Springboks to give a rugby clinic to the kids in the townships. They aren't happy about it, but when they start the clinic they really enjoy it.
After their early run, the Springboks visit Robbenisland. Francois also visits the cell where Mandela was prisoned for so many years.
Moment # 7: Bodyguards play rugby (no picture)
Mandela looks outside of his window and sees his bodyguards play rugby together. At first they couldn't stand each other.
An airplane is flying towards the stadium right before the world cup final. The bodyguards are worried and want to get Mandela safe. When the plane flies over the stadium, it reads "Good luck Bokke".
After an exciting final gainst the all blacks from New Zealand, the Springboks win and are the rugby world champions.
