2021 Olympic uniforms

South Africa had been depleted by Covid-19 infections after two players and a video analyst tested positive for Covid-19 in Tokyo on Sunday. At least 18 players were subsequently identified as close contacts and were forced to isolate in their respective rooms in the Tokyo Olympic Village. A squad of 17 South Africa players did, though, pass pre-game Covid-19 protocols allowing for Thursday’s game to take place at the Tokyo Stadium.
