Living in South Africa, it’s very easy to get caught up in the political shenanigans that occur on a hourly basis. But we aren’t alone; ‘Trump fatigue must be on a par with Zuma’.

And while we are bombarded with all this noise, it’s more important not to miss the good news, the stories of South Africans making strides globally.

And while a two-week trial with Barcelona doesn’t guarantee success, it’s a fantastic opportunity for Jomo Cosmos midfielder Tebogo Tlolane to be spending time with the Catalan giants.

The potential of playing ‘keep-uppy’ with the likes of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez is on many football lovers bucket lists, not just that of this 22-year old.
