Former elite athlete Nick Bester has been admitted to hospital after he was attacked by unknown persons over the weekend.
Viral images of the badly injured Bester were posted on social media yesterday, apparently taken before Bester was admitted to hospital.
“He was attacked and severely beaten by thugs while we were training this morning,” a source close to Bester said. He was apparently left with three broken ribs, a broken bone and a severe tissue injury.
“He has been attacked and may have undergone surgery, but we do not know anything at this stage,” said Adriaan Cronje, who worked as a director with Bester at Nedbank Club.
Bester, a former heavyweight champion who won the Comrades Marathon in KwaZulu-Natal in 1991, was rarely injured or attacked.
In 2010 he was attacked by three men while studying in Pretoria.
He was beaten, beaten and threatened with a knife, leaving his ribs broken, and his attackers stole his bicycle.
In December 2016 he re-entered the hospital and needed a thumb surgery after rescuing his friend from a possible shark attack in Plettenberg Bay.
One of the world’s fastest runners in his day, Bester is now the head coach of the Nedbank Running Club.
He is still an outstanding figure, especially at street races, and is a regular part of local races.
