Kenyan international Victor Wanyama visited the Kenya Sevens team in London and gifted them with a whooping Sh200,000 to boost their morale ahead of the IRB London 7’s tournament.

A video of him talking to the Kenya Sevens team has gone viral on the internet and Kenyans cannot get enough of the Tottenham midfielder who has always made Kenya proud in the English Premier League.

Wanyama is seen encouraging the Kenya Sevens team in the video and later tells them that he will give them a small “gift” to boost their morale.

The Kenya Sevens team is looking forward to an improved performance in today's final round of the 2016/17 HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series at Twickenham Stadium in London.

The national team is coming off its worst ever performance of the season at the Paris leg, where they garnered a solitary point to take their tally to 58. The performance saw them drop one place (12th) on the table standings.
