BELIEVE THE HYPE

Former Bidvest Wits midfielder Papy Faty has passed on after collapsing during a match in eSwatini.

The 28-year-old was on the books of Malanti Chiefs at the time of his death during a league fixture against Green Mamba at Killarney Stadium in Pigg’s Peak.

The Burundi international has been in the news for some years now after Wits released him because of a heart condition.
Despite doctors orders advising him to quit the game, Faty carried on playing.

While playing for Real Kings in the National First Division he collapsed during a match which prompted the club to terminate his contract.
