Gerrie Nel: Prosecutor by day, wrestling instructor by night

2014-04-14 18:00


We all know state Prosecutor Gerrie Nel as the "bull terrier." His determination and line of questioning in the Oscar Pistorius trial is mesmerising to say the least. But, have you ever thought about what else Gerrie does besides, uhm, being amazing?

According to Rapport, Gerrie takes off his robe during the evenings and replaces it with shorts and takkies. Apparently, Gerrie teaches wrestling to children between 3 and 6 years old.

"He is quiet and modest and completely focused when he trains with the youngsters,” the mother of a boy who gets lessons from Nel was quoted as saying.

“He has endless patience and never loses his temper. The children love him,” she told the newspaper.

Seriously, we'd love to have dinner at his house. Invite us, please!
