Support also came from Hollywood star Dwayne Johnson, who shared a five-minute video on social media with an emotional message.

The Rock spoke of the pride in his Samoan heritage during a powerful speech to his 348 million followers on Instagram as he urged the Pacific Island minnows to use “grit” and seize the opportunity to create a legacy.

“When I think about legacy, I think about my grandfather, I think about my dad, the soul man Rocky Johnson,” he said.

“I think about my grandparents. All my ancestors, all your ancestors. Our ancestors are watching.”
