Barcelona and Cameroon legend Samuel Eto’o has congratulated Toronto Raptors duo Serge Ibaka and Pascal Siakam after their historic NBA triumph.

A 114-110 win over Golden State Warriors in Game 6 of the finals was enough for Raptors to become the first Canadian team to win the championship title on Thursday.

Cameroon's Siakam and DR Congo's Ibaka put in top-notch displays at the Oracle Arena, with the former scoring 26 points, to help their team win the best-of-seven NBA finals 4-2.

“Thank you for carrying our colours so high my brothers Pascal Siakam, Serge Ibaka. We are extremely proud of you! Your victory is Africa’s! Congratulations champs,” Eto’o wrote on Instagram.
