Bafana star Khune in court for speeding
Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune is expected back in the Lyttleton Magistrate's Court in March to face charges of reckless and negligent driving.
The soccer star was caught driving at 173km/h in a 120km/h zone in a sponsored Nissan Juke in Centurion on Friday night.
Khune, 26, apologised outside court after his appearance on Tuesday, the New Age reported. "I respect my position as a role model, especially to the younger generation.
I humbly apologise for this indiscretion.
I will ensure that I learn from this and become a better person," Khune was quoted as saying.
The Kaizer Chiefs goalie also quoted former president Nelson Mandela by saying: "Do not judge me by my success, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up". Khune is out on R1500 bail and will appear in court on March 6.
