Port Shepstone - The case of the minibus driver accused of killing mountain biker Burry Stander in an accident was postponed in the Port Shepstone Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.

“The case was postponed to November 28 and 29 for further evidence to be gathered,” National Prosecuting Authority spokesman Nathi Mncube said.

Njabulo Nyawose allegedly knocked down Stander, 25, while he was cycling in Shelley Beach, on the KwaZulu-Natal South Coast, on January 3.

Two witnesses appeared on Tuesday.

Stander was fifth in the men's cross-country race at the 2012 London Olympics. Four years earlier, at the Beijing Games, he finished 15th in the cross-country event.
