Ugandan NFL player Tanoh Mwera Kpassagnon who features as a linebacker for Kansas City Chiefs has finally received his Super Bowl ring that he won with his team earlier at the Super Bowl.
In a private ring ceremony held at the Arrowhead stadium early this week, Mwera along with his chiefs’ teammates received their rings after a few months’ delay due to the Coronavirus crisis that put sporting business across the world to a halt.
In February, the Chiefs rallied from behind to beat San Francisco 49ers 31-20 in Miami to win their first Super Bowl in 50 years.
Mwera and his teammates now shift their attention to the 2020 Super Bowl that starts in less than 10 days with an aim of becoming only the 8th franchise to win the Super Bowl back to Back.
Tanoh Mwera Kpassagnon is the son of Ivorian and Ugandan parents with his mother, Winifred Wafuoyo, a chemist, while his father, Patrice Kpassagnon Tagro, is an economist.
