Impairment
In December 2003 he was involved in a car accident while on holiday in Shelly Beach, South Africa, resulting in his left leg being amputated. "I was forced off the road and rolled my vehicle but, in my opinion, it was medical negligence that cost me my leg in the end." (icexpress.co.za, Dec 2015)
