Samuel Meyiwa and the funeral pose

Digital Content

An unusual meme has emerged in which people are replicating a picture of Senzo Meyiwa's father, taken at the footballer's funeral.

Tens of thousands of people attended the funeral of the South African football captain on Saturday. Meyiwa was shot and killed, apparently after burglars entered his girlfriend's house near Johannesburg. This image of his father - Samuel Meyiwa - greeting the crowd by leaning out of his car window, arms outstretched, was shared widely using the hashtag #SenzosDad.
