Former Springbok athlete and television presenter Andries Krogman hanged himself in his Paarl home last night.
His body was discovered in the garage by his wife after returning home from her son's matric farewell party.
The wife told the media that Krogman had been threatening to kill himself in the past two weeks because of financial difficulties and recently updated his will.
Krogman was the South African 10-thousand metres champion in the 1970s.
More recently, he became well-known for his food show on the Maak 'n Las SABC programme, which is currently being re-broadcast.
