On Friday the President of the Confederation of African Football (CAF), Patrice Motsepe, said about two billion people globally are watching the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Côte d’Ivoire.

Motsepe revealed this at a news conference, ahead of the AFCON third place decider match on Saturday.

He described the feat as an achievement that Africans should be proud of.

“We have had close to two billion people watching AFCON globally. We should be proud as Africans and the next one will be even better.
