South Africa’s former rugby star, Hannes Strydom has died in a car accident at the age of 58.
He was part of the Springbok team that famously won the 1995 Rugby World Cup after the end of apartheid in 1994.
Strydom gained 21 Springbok caps in his career between 1993 and 1997.
The accident took place on Sunday near the coal mining town of eMalahleni in Mpumalanga province.
Strydom made his debut for the Springboks in 1993, and helped defeat arch-rivals New Zealand 15-12 in the 1995 World Cup final in Johannesburg—the biggest sporting event in South Africa after the end of apartheid.
