Earlier reported that Mamelodi Sundowns defender Motjeka Madisha tragically passed away in a car accident on Saturday night. Only hours after the club celebrated its 50th anniversary, the 25-year-old player died in an accident in Kempton Park, Johannesburg.

At this point in time, the details of the accident have yet to be confirmed but it is believed that the soccer icon had another occupant in the vehicle when it burst into flames. It is believed that the driver of the vehicle had lost control before colliding with a metal pole.

One of the occupants perished in the fire inside the vehicle, while a male occupant had been found outside the car, both were declared dead on the scene. Madisha joined the Brazilians five years ago after Highlands Park. Under the leadership of former coach Pitso Mosimane, Madisha secured three ABSA Premiership title wins over the past few years.
