SuperSport expressed sadness on Monday at the death of long-serving Afrikaans rugby commentator Chris Moller.

Moller was involved in a car accident on Sunday morning in Durban after working on the Sharks-Lions Absa Currie Cup semi-final the day before.

Moller, who was 48, joined SuperSport in 1996.

For the last 12 years he contributed regularly on Sanzar, Test and Currie Cup rugby broadcasts.

SuperSport said it would miss one of the great voices of rugby and sent condolences to his wife Susan, his children, family and friends.
