Caster pays tribute to Mulaudzi

Cape Town - Mbulaeni Mulaudzi's tragic death has triggered immediate reaction from two star South African athletes - 2009 women's 800m world champion Caster Semenya and 2008 Olympics long jump silver medallist Khotso Mokoena.

"Just lost a brother, a friend, a very good friend," tweeted Semenya.

"May your soul rest in peace. I love you man, will always love you CHAMP."

Mokoena tweeted: "I have lost a brother, a friend, a champion. Sad news to my soul. Will miss you my brother. RIP. Death be not proud."

Former world 800m champion Mulaudzi, 34, died on Friday in a car crash on his way to a Johannesburg athletics meeting.
