Cameroon Legend Rigobert Song Fighting For His Life After Suffering Stroke

Former Liverpool, West Ham United and Cameroon defender Rigobert Song is reportedly fighting for his life after being rushed to hospital in Yaounde.

The 40-year-old is the uncle of former Arsenal, West Ham and Charlton midfielder Alex. The head coach of Chad's senior national team is in a critical condition after suffering from cerebral aneurysm.  The football world was quick to unite in support of the popular ex-player, who won more than 100 caps for Cameroon. 

Hope everything ends up ok for #rigobertsong
