SA shares memories of Clive Rice
Johannesburg - Former South African cricket captain Clive Rice has passed away at the age of 66.
The sportsman died from a cancer-related condition in a Cape Town hospital this morning.
In February, Rice collapsed at his home, prompting urgent treatment for a cancerous brain tumour.
He was rushed to India to receive what was touted as life-saving cyber-knife treatment for the growth.
Just 18 days ago on his Facebook page, Rice posted a message of gratitude, writing: "Hi everyone, thank you so much for your positive and enthusiastic interest in my experience with Cyber Knife cancer treatment. I have been inundated with questions about the treatment, however I'm unable to answer everyone individually."
Meanwhile, hundreds of people have shared their condolences with Rice's wife, Sue, and their family. They've also shared their memories of the legendary player and captain.
