Former Liverpool and West Ham defender Song, who’s the head coach of the Chad national team, Los Sao, is said to be in a coma after coming down with a cerebral aneurysm.
The 40-year-old former centre-back was at his home in the Odza neighborhood in Yaounde when he had his stroke.
The former Indomitable Lions skipper, who’s an uncle to former Arsenal and Barcelona midfielder Alex Song, won over a hundred caps with the national side and featured in three Fifa World Cups.
He captained Cameroon to consecutive Africa Cup of Nations successes in 2000 and 2002, and was emblematic of the gritty style the team became known for.
Following the news, there has been an outpouring of sympathy from well-wishers around the world and we bring some of the tweets…
