Arsenal midfielder Song fined, banished for snubbing Eto'o handshake

Arsenal midfielder Alex Song has been fined for snubbing a handshake with Inter Milan striker Samuel Eto'o.

The Daily Star says Song has been fined by Cameroon's football federation for showing an "attitude of contempt" towards team captain Eto'o.

Song refused to shake Eto'o's hand before Cameroon's African Nations Cup qualifier against Senegal on June 4.

Song, 23, was fined £1,355, severely reprimanded and ordered to carry out three days' training with Cameroon's youth players.

The Arsenal star has not played for his country since falling out with Eto'o during last summer's World Cup.
