Judge Anton Steenkamp, 57, was in Zambia in the company of his wife when the venomous reptile attacked him.

The incident was confirmed by a relative, Ruby Steenkamp, in an interview with News24. She said:

We’re devastated. No words. What an incredible man. His wife, Catherine, is still on her own in Zambia. They were touring Africa. We as a family were very, very proud of him.
