Rigobert Song, the former Liverpool, West Ham and Cameroon defender is reportedly fighting for his life after suffering a stroke.

The 40-year-old was rushed to a Cameroonian hospital last night and is said to be in a critical condition.

Song is the uncle of former Arsenal and Barcelona midfielder Alex Song, and is currently the manager of the Chad national team

He holds a record with Zinedine Zidane as the only players to have been sent off in two World Cups, and he’s currently in charge of Chad – with the African Cup of Nations taking place this January.
