Eto’o, 39, suffered a head injury and was immediately taken to hospital for treatment.

However, it is suggested the former Chelsea man is recovering well under close attention from doctors.

Cameroonian journalist Martin Camus tweeted a picture of Eto’o’s apparent destroyed motor 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.”

The picture shows Eto’o’s car smashed from the front and was perhaps lucky to escape without further injuries.
