Lewis Hamilton has once again shown his love and admiration for South Africa while singing the praises of the African continent.
The British-born Formula One (F1) star showed off a beaded bracelet emblazoned with the SA flag.
LEWIS HAMILTON SHOWS SA LOVE
Talking to Sky Sports On Thursday, ahead of his race at this weekend’s Belgian Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton reflected on his big African expedition during the August break.
Wearing a beaded bracelet in the colors of the SA flag, he said: “Even though I’ve been there before, this is the place I wanted to go more than anywhere else.
“I got to travel to different places and it was incredible how welcoming everyone was. It was a very grounding experience to see the landscape and humbling to see how people live with literally nothing.”

Although the world champion did not visit South Africa this time, he did tour countries such as Namibia, Rwanda, Kenya and Tanzania.
Lewis Hamilton has previously led the call for Formula 1 to return to Africa, and specifically to the ‘homeland’; since their last race at the Kyalami circuit in Johannesburg in 1993.
He told reporters ahead of his October 2021 F1 Grand Prix race in Texas: “The place that I really hold dear to my heart and the most important thing for me is to bring the race back to South Africa. I think there are a lot of fans and it would be great to be able to highlight how beautiful the homeland is.”
TOURS IN AFRICA
Meanwhile, Lewis Hamilton has been showing off his adventures across the African continent in several Instagram posts.
And it’s been a busy schedule, from watching wild gorillas in Rwanda to dancing with the Pokot people in Kenya to visiting an animal sanctuary in Tanzania and finally hot air ballooning in Namibia.
