The president of the South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee, Gideon Sam, has paid tribute to struggle hero Dennis Brutus, who died, aged 85.

Brutus helped to get South Africa suspended from international sport during apartheid.

It eventually led to South Africa’s expulsion from the Olympic Games in 1970.

Sam says Brutus was a stalwart in liberating South African sport from the grips of apartheid.
