Cape Town - Bafana Bafana coach Gordon Igesund was injured while running a 100m sprint at his son's sports day over the weekend.

According to the Soccer-Laduma website, Igesund sprained his ankle in the race at Rondebosch Boys Preparatory School in Cape Town.

He attended his six-year-old son Gareth's sports day and was persuaded to run in the father's 100m sprint race.

Luckily for the coach, X-rays confirmed that he had not broken anything.

Igesund's next assignment is when Bafana tackle Brazil at FNB Stadium on March 5.

He was last week told he will stay on as Bafana coach until his contract expires in June this year.

Igesund was called to a meeting with SAFA's technical committee to explain Bafana's early exit from the recent African Nations Championship (CHAN) hosted by South Africa.
