Remember him? It's been a while since we heard from Bryan Habana and now we know why.

The now 35-year-old former Springbok player is one of the country's most recognizable sportsmen. Although Brian retired last year, after finishing his career with Toulon Rugby Club in France, he still holds the record for South Africa's all-time leading try scorer in Test rugby - scoring 67 tries in 124 Tests for the Springboks between 2004 and 2016.

After hanging up his jersey, Brian apparently opted to remain in France to further his education. Habana graduated from Toulouse Business School along with 35 other professional rugby players last Wednesday. “I definitely regret not finishing my studies back at RAU all those years ago,” he posted on his Instagram page upon celebrating his recent graduation. “Even though this diploma is not quite a BSc IT degree, I am thankful that I committed myself to seeing this course through!”

Having spent so much time in France, Brian now also speaks French fluently! You can see him thanking his friends and family for their support in this video:

Brian did also thank his loved ones in English too, don't worry. "To my amazing wife who supported and constantly motivated me but also kept the house in order and our kids entertained, bathed and fed while I was busy! And yet she’s still the more qualified one in our household." he gushed on instagram.

How happy does he look there?? We hope this is only the beginning of a successful next chapter for the legendary player!!
