Ventersdorp - Bafana Bafana and Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune finally got his hands on the R1m prize after being crowned as the 2013 South African Sports Star of the year in a glittering award ceremony held at the Sun City Superbowl in November last year. On top of the huge prize sum, the 27-year-old goal-minder also walked away with a 2013 BMW 1-series. The "Spider Kid" was voted for by the public, finishing ahead of Proteas cricketer Hashim Amla, swimming sensation Chad le Clos, wheelchair tennis star Lucas Sithole and runner Mapaseka Makhanya.Khune pocketed half the money, with the other half going to charity.Speaking exclusively to Sport24 from his home town, Ventersdorp, on Monday night, the Premier Soccer League (PSL) Goalkeeper of the Season said he donated half a million to a Primary School he attended as well as an old age home in the same town. "It was a great feeling for me to be recognised for all my hard work," said Khune."I got my car few months back and today (Monday) I got my money."The check was handed over to me by the Department of Sports and Recreation."I took a trip to my home town to donate money to the Primary School I attended.""I was accompanied by the Minister of Sports and Recreation Fikile Mbalula and other delegates."They also spent the day with me and it was a special day for me and the kids from the school."We also went to another old age home here and donated money too."Khune's triumphant year was completed over the weekend after being crowned as the PSL Goalkeeper of the Season, beating his Bafana counterpart, Moeneeb Josephs of Wits and young Ajax Cape Town shot-stopper, Anssi Jaakkola. The national team skipper shared his delights after pocketing R50 000 for the accolade. "I was so excited to be voted the best in the PSL too," he said."Everyone deserves a recognition for his hard work."Honestly, I was expecting to win the award because numbers or statistics don't lie."I kept 14 clean-sheets this past season, so I believed I deserved to win."All credit must go to my team-mates, friends and family for all the support they have shown to me."I really wanted to defend all my accolades from the 2012/14 season but I was distracted by injuries this season," he added. The North West-born goal-minder will not take part in a trip to Australia and New Zealand with the national team for friendly games next week due to injuries.
