South Africans have taken to social media to pledge their support to John “Shoes” Moshoeu: the former Bafana Bafana and Kaizer Chiefs star is reportedly ill and fighting for his life at the Charlotte Maxeke Hospital in Johannesburg.

According to the Sunday Sun newspaper the 49-year-old footballer "was admitted to the public hospital three weeks ago and is in a critical condition".



Moshoeu’s worried mother, Reena, said: "For the past few months he’s been going from one private hospital to another – until his medical aid got exhausted. He was brought into this hospital by Yvonne Chaka Chaka’s husband. He was supposed to be taken to theatre for an operation. But that hasn’t happened yet. My son hasn’t eaten anything in days."
