Ageing seems to be a bit of a myth for South African football legend Doctor Khumalo, as he has proven time and time again that class is permanent. Here's a look at his most recent youthfully stylish look.
It appears that in terms of style and elegance, 16V hardly ever goes wrong. The widely celebrated legend has remained quite relevant in the football quarters and the release of his docuseries The Untold Story Of Doctor Khumalo has cast his life more into the spotlight.
It was also his film that showed just how popular he was during his heyday, as often hung around South African celebrities including musicians and other television personalities. It appears that he has not lost any clout since his days a professional and nowadays it looks like ageing is a really slow process for the ex-Kaizer Chiefs star.
