And now, a beluga whale playing rugby

Beluga whale plays fetch with Rugby fans on boat in Arctic Ocean

The whale retrieved the ball a few times.

The whale then chases the ball, returning it to the men on the boat.

Many South Africans are still celebrating following the Boks' Rugby World Cup win against England last weekend in Japan. Even the Rugby World Cup tweeted out their praise for the new star. Within seconds, a swift beluga whale is seen scooping the ball in its mouth and bringing it back to the man on the boat.

Since being shared online on Twitter a day ago, more than 4.1 million people have watched the video.

Beluga whales are highly sociable and have shown curiosity towards humans in the past.

"This will be the coolest thing I see all day".

"Man.this is one of the most handsome videos I've seen", said another user.

"Beluga Whale celebrating the Springboks victory somewhere close to the South Pole!" They also have the ability to swim backwards, can dive for up to 25 minutes and for over 800 metres, and can even change the shape of their head by blowing air out of their sinuses.
