Members of the South African sporting community came together on Tuesday to support the #BlackLivesMatter and #BlackOutTuesday movements on social media.

There has been a global outcry following the death of American George Floyd last week after the 46-year-old suffered a "cardiopulmonary arrest complicating law enforcement subdual, restraint, and neck compression" after being held down by a police officer.

In South Africa, sports stars have taken to social media to lend their voices to the conversation.
