The former South African rugby kingpin, business magnate and politician Louis Luyt has died in a Durban hospital aged 80.
Luyt was best known as the outspoken boss of South African rugby when the Springboks won the Rugby World Cup for the first time in 1995, a year after the fall of apartheid.
That victory was immortalised in the Hollywood blockbuster 'Invictus', starring Morgan Freeman as then-President Nelson Mandela.
In 1998, Luyt was accused of racism and financial mismanagement in his role as South African Rugby Union president, resulting in his resignation and a presidential inquiry.
His business success was based on the founding of a fertiliser company and a brewery.
Luyt was suffering from heart ailments at the time of his death.
