Yaya Toure fever scare passes



Cote d'Ivoire midfield giant Yaya Toure is back on his feet after missing two days of training in the Elephants' Abu Dhabi camp for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations Cup finals in South Africa, following a heavy fever.

Older brother and club-mate Kolo, who is also in the Ivoirian team, revealed that Yaya had received time off because of the ailment.

"Yaya had a couple of days off," Kolo told Manchester City's official website, adding that his brother was "back on his feet".

Favourites to win the title, the Elephants have been pooled in the dangerous Group D alongside Togo, Algeria and Tunisia.

They will tackle Egypt in a friendly on January 14, before heading to South Africa where they open their campaign against Togo on January 22.
