Cameroon legend Rigobert Song is out of danger says Cameroon’s Public Health Minister, Andre Mama Fouda, according to the SportsTalkAfrica website.
Fouda is quoted as saying the legendary defender has recovered following a stroke he suffered on Sunday at his home in Yaounde.
Reports revealed that the ex-Indomitable Lions skipper suffered cerebral aneurysm on Sunday and lapsed into a coma.
However, it is now reported that he is out of critical danger, breathing by himself and has been flown to Paris, France for further treatment.
“He leaves conscious. His life is no longer in danger, but he is not out of the woods yet. We hope he gets well soon and comes back in full form, as we know him to be,” said Andre Mama Fouda.
Hailing him as a true lion, the Cameroon Football Association (Fecafoot) has also confirmed that Song, who has been working as the country’s A-team coach, was moved to a new hospital on Tuesday night.
“Victim of a stroke, Rigo Song, Lions A coach, was evacuated this evening. Swift recovery to you, the Lion,” reads a tweet.

On the other hand, a French newspaper, L’Equipe reported that the 40-year-old had opened his eyes and smiled after coming out of the coma.
