South Africa rugby team visit Chelsea players during training session

Members of the South Africa rugby team meet the Chelsea players at the football club's training ground in Cobham.

Players from the South Africa rugby squad switched their focus to a different sport for the day when they visited the Chelsea football team in Cobham on Thursday.

The Springboks took a break from preparations for this weekend's World Cup semi-final against New Zealand.

Chelsea's media team uploaded a string of pictures and Vines on social media, one of which showed Diego Costa's surprise at the size of the rugby stars.

South Africa reached the final four by sealing a 23-19 victory over Wales at Twickenham in the quarter-finals last weekend.
