South Africa: Bafana Coach Gordon Igesund in Hospital

Bafana Bafana Coach Gordon Igesund yesterday admitted himself in hospital suffering from severe abdominal pains.

Initial tests showed that the Bafana coach might be suffering from appendicitis.

Dr Ephraim Nematswerani who is attending to coach Igesund said so far he had detected that the national coach might be having appendicitis.

"Thorough and further investigations are being carried out to confirm the diagnosis. We are however, confident that he will be back on his feet soon. It is nothing too serious," added Dr Nematswerani.
