Former South Africa captain Neil Tovey has been admitted to the intensive care unit of a Durban hospital after suffering three heart attacks on Tuesday.

Tovey, who captained Bafana Bafana when they won the Africa Cup of Nations in 1996 and received the cup from President Nelson Mandela, who was wearing Tovey's Bafana jersey, is said to have to have been resuscitated after the attacks.alt

The 52-year-old, who was capped over 50 times by his country, played for Durban City, AmaZulu and Kaizer Chiefs and won numerous trophies during his time with the South African glamor club, Chiefs.

He became a manager after retiring and coached numerous top flight clubs in South Africa.

Moeshoeu, who played 73 times for South Africa, also played for Kaizer Chiefs, as well as a number of clubs in Turkey. He captained one of the giants of Turkish football, Fenerbahce.

It has not been reported what the former midfielder is suffering from.
