Former tennis ace Roger Federer was spotted cheering the Springboks to victory alongside his adorable family – including his two sets of twins – on Saturday night.
The Swiss tennis champion, 42, sporting a South Africa shirt, stood in the VIP box alongside his wife Mirka, 45, and children as they watched the New Zealand vs South Africa Rugby World Cup final in Paris last night.
Clearly aligned with South Africa, where Federer’s mother Lynette was born, the entire Federer clan wore green.
Twins Leo and Lenny, both nine, and Myla Rose and Charlene Riva, both 14, stole the spotlight from their dad as they were photographed sporting cute identical gear.
Leo and Lenny donned identical forest green hooded jackets, alongside a pair of grey joggers decorated with a single black and white line along the pant leg.

In tandem with their younger brothers, the girls also donned green jackets – albeit in a floral pattern – mixed with lighter shades of green and a hint of yellow.
Myla Rose and Charlene Riva teamed the look with faded blue jeans and an official green 2023 Rugby World Cup scarf.
Both sets of twins sealed their looks with matching navy blue baseball caps which featured white text along the front.
Roger himself donned a South Africa shirt and and green jacket to match, in a sweet nod to his mother Lynette Federer – also in attendance at the game – who originates from South Africa.
The proud mum was seen beaming in the crowd while taking photographs of her son and his happy brood.
South Africa won a tense match 12-11 against New Zealand, with NZ captain Sam Cane sent off in the World Cup final.

South Africa secured a mighty win on Saturday – their second World Cup in a row – at Stade de France in Saint-Denis near Paris.
The Springboks defeated the All Blacks by a point in the final, even though both sides lost their captains during the match with Sam Cane being shown red.
The flawed but compelling final saw South Africa, remarkably, become the first nation to be crowned champions four times.
Federer made headlines back in June when he proved he was no match for the Princess of Wales when they met on a Wimbledon tennis court.
The pair were playing a doubles match on No3 Court – where Federer won his first match on the way to taking his first Wimbledon title 20 years ago – to highlight the work of ball boys and girls at the tournament.
Kate managed to get a shot past the Swiss star, prompting him to exclaim: ‘I think it was on the line. Amazing!’
The Princess also took the opportunity to try to get some sneaky coaching advice from the former world No1.
‘Any tips on my serve at the same time would be very helpful,’ she said. But Federer replied only with a compliment, saying: ‘The serve looks good.’
