Former Bafana Bafana coach April 'Styles' Phumo died in a private hospital in Bloemfontein on Sunday after battling with cancer for some time.
The former Bloemfontein Celtic and Nathi Lions coach's daughter Olga confirmed the sad news of her father's passing.
“My father passed away around 11am on Sunday after battling with cancer for some time,” she told KickOff.com.
Details of the funeral arrangements have still to be released.
Bra Styles, who coached the national team during 2003 and into early 2004 before being replaced by Stuart Baxter, had a short stint with First Division side Atlie FC during this season before being admitted to hospital in August.
KickOff extends its heartfelt condolences to his family and friends.
