WATCH | A wild beluga plays catch with an SA rugby ball

This will make your heart swell even more with pride as the Bokke tour SA with the Web Ellis trophy.

A video is going viral of a wild beluga whale - somewhere close to the North Pole - playing catch with a South African rugby ball!

WATCH: Divers swim with giant 7m great white in Hawaii 

One of the crew members can be seen throwing the ball far out to sea, and the playful whale just fetches it and brings it right back for more.

Perhaps this whale was our lucky charm in the World Cup final.
