An England fan is fighting for his life after being assaulted by Russian hooligans, just hours before England play Russia in Marseille.

Reports say a group of organised Russian hooligans ambushed England fans in Marseille, and one England fan suffered a cardiac arrest after being chased down and assaulted.

Paramedics tried to stabilise the man, before he was rushed to hospital in an ambulance.

French media said the fan was “between life and death”.
