Fame & Fortune

Samuel Eto'o has landed a new role in Senegal after being appointed as an ambassador for Dakar-based company Bag'O.

Cameroon legend Eto'o was in Dakar, Senegal on Wednesday for the launch of the local start-up company Bag'O, for whom he has been appointed as a global ambassador, according to Africa Top Sports.

The 39-year-old's position with the air transport company comes just days after he was recognised as an ambassador for the country of Chad, which adds to his ever-expanding portfolio of roles he has held since retiring from football last year.
