Disgraceful scenes at St Andrew’s as a Birmingham City fan ran on to the pitch and punched Jack Grealish. The derby had just kicked off when the incident took place.
The fan ran in from near the corner flag and blindsided the young English winger. He was immediately caught by a steward and surrounded by Villa players as Grealish slowly got up.
Sky Sports have an update on the situation and report that the fan has been arrested. The incident has sent shockwaves across the world as football fans have taken to Twitter and condemned the attack.
While there is no official word on the situation, it would not be a surprise if the Birmingham ‘fan’ is banned for life from all stadiums across the country and also jailed.
The video of the incident is attached below:
