Harare - Former Birmingham, Coventry and Sheffield United striker Peter Ndlovu is in a critical condition in a hospital in Zimbabwe after a car accident that killed his older brother Adam and a female passenger.

Adam Ndlovu, who was also a former Zimbabwe international and was driving the car, died after Sunday's accident along with the unidentified female.
