Kobus Wiese in ICU after suffering 'massive' heart attack
Kobus Wiese (56) has been hospitalised after suffering a serious heart attack on Wednesday.
The former World Cup-winning Springbok is “stable” in intensive care after undergoing surgery.
Lester Kiewit interviewed his friend and former Springbok, Toks van der Linde.
He is OK. It happened on Wednesday morning. His wife rushed him to Paarl hospital. They got ER to take him to Panorama… They stabilised him and put a stent in…Toks van der Linde, former Springbok
We pray that he gets better. Kobus is mentally very strong. I really think he will survive it.Toks van der Linde, former Springbok
We’ve been mates since 1995… I didn’t sleep last night. It’s tough… We are legends, but I don’t feel like it… We’re well-known in South Africa… I was roommates with Kobus for years…Toks van der Linde, former Springbok
It’s a major wake-up call.Toks van der Linde, former Springbok
