Wayde van Niekerk

South Africa’s 400 metre Olympic gold medal winner Wayde van Niekerk was spotted wearing a Richard Mille RM 27-02 Tourbillon wrist watch.

While its not uncommon for athletes to sport watches whilst breaking world records, the RM 27-02 may be a bit different in that it costs $800,000 –  or R10 700 000 in local currency.

The watch was made famous by Rafael Nadal, and was spotted on several athletes at the Rio Games  – including current SA golden boy, van Niekerk.

Besides being rewarded with R500,000 by the South African South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (Sascoc) for winning a gold medal at the Olympic Games, sports agents believe that van Nikerk will be able to cash in on his new found celebrity.



He has already been named as a new Audi Sport Ambassador, and will have the luxury of driving the Audi RS 3 Sportback upon his return to South Africa.
