Former Premier League forward Peter Ndlovu is being treated for serious injuries in a Bulawayo hospital this morning after a car crash which claimed the life of his brother Adam.
39-year-old Ndlovu, 39, had playing spells in England with Coventry, as well as Birmingham, Huddersfield and Sheffield United, before returning to African club football in 2004.
Zimbabwe prime minister Morgan Tsvangirai said in a statement he was "deeply saddened at the death of a footballing legend, Adam Ndlovu" in what he called a "horror crash".
He said: "My prayers are with the Ndlovu family, the football fraternity and the nation at this sad loss."
The brothers were travelling to Victoria Falls to take part in a charity match and were in Peter Ndlovu's SUV when it veered off the road around 12 miles from the famous waterfall.
Football clubs sent their good wishes to Zimbabwean striker Peter Ndlovu, who is in a critical condition in hospital following a car accident. His older brother Adam and a female passenger were killed in the crash.
Ndlovu, 39, was taken to hospital in his home city of Bulawayo after the crash near Victoria Falls in the west of Zimbabwe. He played for a number of teams in England, including Coventry City, Birmingham City and Sheffield United, who all sent support to the injured player.
