Shocking footage has surfaced online of football legend and current President of Cameroon, Samuel Eto’o, attacking a man outside a stadium during the World Cup in Qatar.

The incredible clip shows the former Barcelona, ​​Inter Milan and Chelsea striker leaving Stadium 974 in Doha after watching Brazil race to victory against South Korea in their round of 16.

At first, Eto’o seems happy to pose for photos with waiting fans as he exits the venue, before a man with a video camera approaches him on his right.

The images, filmed by La Opinionthen the pair appear to exchange words, before the video cuts off a few seconds later, and Eto’o returns to the scene to confront the man.

At this point, several onlookers step in to try and quell the disturbance, but Eto’o is determined to pursue the man and eventually has to be restrained as he continues to try to confront him.

With four men restraining Eto’o, the footage then shows him handing his phone to a man, before breaking out of the group to kneel in the man’s face and knock him to the ground.

The brutal blow appears to happen as the man bends over, unaware that Eto’o is returning to continue the confrontation.

Though understandably shocked, the unknown man is helped to his feet and appears not to be badly hurt by the shocking blow, while Eto’o is restrained again by two men.
