The South African football fraternity woke up to the sad news of the passing of Bafana Bafana and Mamelodi Sundowns defender, Motjeka Madisha on Saturday night.
The 25-year old died in a car crash in Kempton Park.
Madisha's passing is the latest tragedy to hit local soccer following the death of Madisha's former Sundowns team-mate Anele Ngcongca in an accident in KwaZulu-Natal two weeks ago.
South African soccer clubs and football fans from around the country took to Twitter to pay their respects to Madisha.
