Former Springbok and 1995 World Cup winner Hannes Strydom died in a car accident on Sunday night amid unresolved allegations that his chain of pharmacies illegally sold codeine-containing cough syrups allegedly destined for the black market.

Strydom died after the double cab bakkie he was travelling in rear-ended a taxi on the N4 highway in Mpumalanga between the Balmoral and Kromdraai offramps.
