Cameroon players get hero’s welcome


Cameroon’s Africa Cup of Nations-winning squad have been given a special state reception by the country’s president Paul Biya.

The Indomitable Lions, who lifted the trophy after beating Egypt 2-1 in the final in Gabon, on Wednesday attended a ceremony in Yaounde.

They presented the Nations Cup trophy to President Biya at Unity Palace.

Cameroon’s players were given medals by the president, who said their victory should be celebrated by Cameroonians as one nation.

At the end of the ceremony Cameroon First Lady Chantal Biya posed for a series of photos with the players – at one point she used Fabrice Ondoa’s phone to take a ‘selfie’ with them.
