But things quickly disintegrated when a cameraman approached him to his right.

In the video, the two can be seen exchanging words before Eto'o decides to confront the man.

It remains unclear what was said to Eto'o to anger him, with the Cameroonian football administrator reacting furiously before he began to push the cameraman.

With the situation seemingly getting out of hand, several onlookers stepped in to try and quell the disruption, only for Eto'o to chase down the man before he was eventually held back as he continued with the confrontation.

Despite at least four men appearing to hold Eto'o back, the former footballer managed to break out and went on to knee the man in the face dropping him to the ground.
