South Africa footballer struck by lightning dies

A South African footballer has died two months after being struck by lightning while playing in a friendly game in March.

Top league side Maritzburg United confirmed the passing of 21-year-old Luyanda Ntshangase.

The club posted on its Facebook page about the “tragic” loss:

“We are extremely sad about the loss of Luyanda, an exciting young player with enormous potential. He had been nurtured by the club and brought through our ranks, having being given his debut against Kaizer Chiefs two season’s ago by former head coach Ernst Middendorp”.
