Gloucester have confirmed that star flank Ruan Ackermann was robbed during his holiday back in South Africa.
Ackermann was back in the country with the English Premiership on a break until the weekend of 14 February.
The 24-year-old posted on his Instagram page that he had been a victim of crime on Wednesday.
‘Hello Everyone. Had a bad experience yesterday! Got hijacked and gun pointed. Everything stolen,’ the status update read. ‘Grateful for the blessing of God that kept us safe. If anyone needs me just DM me.’
Ackermann confirmed he was unharmed with a further update later on Thursday.
He will be back in action when Gloucester resume their campaign against the Exeter Chiefs.
