Former Barcelona and Chelsea star Samuel Eto’o is reportedly in hospital after his car was struck by a bus in his native Cameroon.
The 39-year-old is believed to have been travelling to Douala – the largest city in the country – when the accident happened.
Eto’o attended a wedding over the weekend and was returning home, while pictures have emerged showing the huge damage the collision caused to the front of his vehicle.
While Eto’o is not believed to be injured, his family have told the BBC they are awaiting an update from doctors before he can be discharged from hospital.
he report adds there were no deaths as the result of the crash, during which the bus hit two cars, while the driver responsible has been apprehended by the police.
Eto’o retired from playing last year with 427 goals for club and country to his name, most recently featuring for Qatar SC.
Eto’o then moved to Inter Milan in a deal which saw Zlatan Ibrahimovic move the other way and won the treble for the second year running.
To this day, he remains the only player to win back-to-back trebles, while he won a total of 11 major honors during his time at Inter, Barca and Real, where he came through the ranks.
