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.
