I know how much Desmond’s grandpa means to him… check this pic he took and he says:
“This is my grandpa, he is 86 and my inspiration (besides Toni).
He was still building houses a year ago and my parents house on the west coast was his last one. Its scary visiting him and driving up his drive way and seeing him on the roof just chilling and hosing the gutters, he is mad! He was my only financial supporter in my sport as a child and I’m very grateful for this.
He is one of a few persons still alive in SA that fought in world war 2!! I thought it would be cool seeing him again in his uniform, made him feel very special and my grandma had this sparkle in her eyes when she saw him, sweet hay?”
