Tarzan Jacobs, 81, died on Thursday in Brackenfell and will be buried on Monday, while Frikkie Alberts, 78, who wrestled as the ‘Masked Vrystaat’, was buried on Friday.

Both were part of the golden era of promoter Bull Hefer in the 1960s and ’70s.

Jacobs was enormously strong and also placed second in the Mr Universe body-building competition behind John Lees in London in 1957.


Frikkie Alberts

As a professional wrestler he had a strong following – mostly because of a superb muscular body.

Jacobs said his toughest opponent in the ring was Hercules Cortez with Ski-Hi Lee a close second.

He also fought international fighters Big John Strongbo, Spiros Arion and Yamo-Moto.
