has announced the death of Femina Stars Ebolowa goalkeeper Jeanine Christelle Djomnang.

The 26-year-old goalkeeper collapsed during her warm-up before a Femina Stars Ebolowa match in southern Cameroon, and was rushed to hospital. The governing body said on Sunday initial reports suggested she died of a heart attack but it is now awaiting the formal medical report, the BBC reported.
