Khune tweeted a picture of himself in the gym with the caption: "Working very hard to get my back.Once you control your mind, you can conquer your body".

Khune's tweet:

The extent of Khune's injury was revealed when he was called up to the Bafana Bafana ahead of the AFCON qualifier against Sudan. South Africa team doctor Thulani Ngwenya disclosed that Khune has a grade 3 stress fracture in his foot and would be out of action for at least six weeks.
