Cape Town - Some rather strange "requests" have appeared from people asking former Proteas legend Jonty Rhodes to unfriend them on Facebook.

One person even went as far as to state "they were glad their grandmother wasn’t alive, as Jonty was her hero", according to the 2oceansvibe website.

Rhodes, who's lived in KwaZulu-Natal for most of his life, ended his marriage to wife Kate in early 2010, but only got legally divorced on April 24 this year. Kate and their two children are still living in KwaZulu-Natal.

According to the Hermanus Times website, Rhodes now calls Hermanus in the Western Cape home, where he resides with fiance Caroline McClelland, a professional photographer.

Rhodes, 44, played 52 Tests and 245 ODIs for the Proteas.

In 1999 Rhodes was voted as one of the Wisden Cricketers of the Year.

Rhodes is currently employed as the fielding coach for IPL team, the Mumbai Indians.
