Former South African footballer shot dead

South African former footballer Marc Batchelor has been shot dead near his home in Johannesburg.

Batchelor played for Kaizer Chiefs, Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns in South Africa.

Dlamini added: “He died inside the car and they drove away without taking anything.
