Cabinet has joined the rest of South Africa in congratulating Caster Semenya for her victory in the 800m event at the Prefontaine Classic in California, in the USA.

Semenya, who is a two-time Olympic champion, remains unbeaten in the 800m since September 2015.

Briefing media after an ordinary Cabinet meeting this week, Minister in the Presidency Jackson Mthembu described Semenya as an indomitable athlete.

Cabinet also congratulated Amy Claire King, who was crowned the World Masters Singles champion at the prestigious World 8 Ball Pool Championships in Blackpool in the United Kingdom and Tennis star Kgothatso Montjane.
