Perhaps you would be surprised at just how far South African legend Doctor Khumalo's popularity extends as the Kaizer Chiefs icon recently stole the show in Tanzania. Here's a look.

The story

Khumalo admitted to his heart being full after those close to him threw a surprise party for the adored ex-footballer. However, what was more notable was just how cool and effortless the former playmaker continues to be even with his increasing years - thus leaving no doubt that he is ageing like fine wine.

Class is permanent, drip is forever.

Last month Doc made headlines when he gave his honest assessment about the running of the national team during a press conference for Ria Ledwada. The speech seems to have left a mark as the debate about the current state of football in South Africa continues to be making the rounds on social media.

On a lighter note, the 1996 Africa Cup of Nations champion is an icon on the continent and many seemed quite familiar with him in the tropical Zanzibar. Considered to be among the greatest Mzansi footballers of all time, Khumalo was his typical self, dressed like a proper man of class, and looked all cosy standing in front of an island backdrop. 

His outfit consisted of a lot of subtlety however, the fact that he was rocking Dior on his birthday cannot be unseen.

Your thoughts, please?

Should Doc receive a hands-on job at SAFA or the national team?
