CAPE TOWN, Oct 24 (Reuters) - Former 800 meters world champion and Olympic silver medalist Mbulaeni Mulaudzi, 34, has been killed in a car accident in his native South Africa, his manager said on Friday.

"Mr Mulaudzi was surely one of the most decorated track athletes that South Africa has ever seen and unfortunately never had the recognition from the federation for all his achievements so it is indeed a sad day," Peet van Zyl told the ewn.co.za website.
