Kermit Erasmus honoured to meet President Jacob Zuma in Paris


Erasmus celebrated his 26th birthday last Friday, then scored his first senior goal in front of Rennes coach Christian Gourcuff on Saturday night in a friendly against Laval.

That goal, although just a pre-season friendly, is significant for the former SuperSport United and Orlando Pirates man as he looks to convince the Rennes technical team that he is ready for a place in the first team next season. 

And then on Monday he posted this message on Twitter while attending an event in Paris as an honoured guest of French President Francois Hollande. Zuma is on a state visit to France and happily mingled with the South African striker.
