Siya Kolisi has revealed that he will release his autobiography Rise” this September.
He took to his social media accounts to reveal the news.
In his post, he wrote: “It is rare for a player to release their autobiography during their career but someone else had other ideas and released a book about me without my consent and so I wanted to give you all the opportunity to read my real story.”

He added: “I believe in lifting as you rise, and will be donating a portion of the proceeds towards community development around the country.
“Thanks for all your support, and God bless.”
“It was so important for me that my story was told from my own account and with the right publishing group.”
The book is written by British author Boris Starling.
The book announcement comes months after Kolisi's wife, Rachel, asked South Africans to boycott Siya Kolisi: Against All Odds, an unauthorised biography about the World Cup winning captain.
Kolisi issued a statement at the time distancing himself from the book.
“To clear any confusion, the book published about me with my name on the cover wasn’t written by me or produced with my approval or even knowledge,” he said
