The 39-year old was traveling home from a family wedding celebration when his car is reported to have been struck by a public bus on the Nkongsamba-Douala Road on Sunday morning, November 8.
He reportedly suffered a head injury and was immediately taken to hospital for treatment.
Cameroonian journalist Martin Camus tweeted a picture of Eto’o’s damaged vehicle alongside the caption: “The crushed car Samuel Eto’o was in.
“I can confirm that he is fine, we spoke again. Doctors taking care of additional examinations.”
