Midfielder Luyanda Ntshangase from South African top-flight side Maritzburg United died today, two months after being struck by lightning during a friendly fixture.

The promising 21-year-old had been in an induced coma since the March 1st incident and the club said he had succumbed to his injuries in a statement released today.

“We are extremely sad about the loss of Luyanda, an exciting young player with enormous potential,” Maritzburg chairman Farook Kadodia said in a statement.

Ntshangase, who made his debut against Kaizer Chiefs in October 2016, is the third Maritzburg player to perish in a little more than two years after midfielders Mondli Cele, 27, and Mlondi Dlamini, 20, died in separate car accidents.
