The Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper has responded to recent reports suggesting that he died in a car accident.

This comes after reports emerged on social media on Wednesday night suggesting that the Bafana Bafana goalkeeper had lost his life in a car crash.

Football fans posted messages of condolences on social media after hearing the news.

Khune dismissed the rumours by posting a picture of himself on his official Twitter account with the caption “Alive and kicking”.

Khune’s girlfriend Sbahle Mpisane was, however, involved in a car accident last month in Durban while driving a car that the goal minder had bought her.

She is still in hospital recovering from the accident.
