Cameroonian journalist Martin Camus tweeted a picture of the car the former Barcelona striker damaged from the crash.

In an Instagram post, the striker shared a host of photos from the wedding he attended and also revealed that he suffered no physical harm.


On the way back, I had an unfortunate car accident, which almost made me forget my dance moves from the night before,” part of his statement on social media read.

But I want to reassure you, I am doing very well. Thanks be unto the Lord, for getting us out of it miraculously without physical harm.

Eto’o played for Cameroon for 17 years winning two Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) titles and an Olympic Gold with the U-23.

His club career was even more prolific with three Champions League trophies, four league titles, and several other cup titles with Barcelona and Inter Milan.
