Samuel Eto'o, the former Cameroon striker and current president of the country's football federation, was involved in an altercation with a cameraman in Qatar after Brazil's victory over South Korea on Monday.
In a video which surfaced on Twitter in the early hours of Tuesday, it said showed Eto'o clashing with a man holding a video camera as he left Doha's Stadium 974.
Looking at the video, Eto'o was moving through several men holding cameras trying to possibly get his comments or reaction after the game.
Then, he walked back to meet the man who later became the subject of his anger.
The accompanying report said the 41-year-old four-time African Player of the Year had reacted angrily to the unidentified man's presence and struck him as he fell to the ground in the melee.
As of the time of this report, Eto'o nor Cameroon football federation has not issued any statement as regards their president's actions.
Eto'o, who enjoyed a lengthy career at the top of the game with long spells at Barcelona and Inter Milan, was appointed a "global ambassador" for the Supreme Committee in 2019.
