Trevor’s message reads: “I’ve thought of every possible caption for this picture but really what can I write? You’re at the Brooklyn Nets game, the King of Brooklyn walks in with his wife Beyoncé and then they both fist bump you. You try to act cool but then later you see a picture of the moment and you realise that this life is insane!!!

“What a privilege and magical moment to experience in life. And even though magic happens to me every day, I hope the little South African boy inside of me never stops reminding me that I’m living a dream.”
