United fan suffers stabbing in Rome

A Manchester United fan is recovering in Rome after being stabbed ahead of the Champions League final.

The supporter was attacked near his hotel in the Italian capital by up to four suspects in the early hours of this morning, according to Sky Sports News.

The man received stab wounds to the left leg and was later discharged from hospital.

A spokesperson for Greater Manchester Police in Rome said: "I can confirm that we have received reports of a stabbing in Rome. "We have no details yet of the incident but we are making full inquiries."

The 54-year-old male victim discharged himself from hospital after his condition was not deemed as serious. A Foreign Office spokesperson said: "We have been receiving reports of an incident and are looking into it."

In Rome, British Embassy spokesman Pierluigi Puglia added: "We know that a British man was stabbed in the left leg overnight and was later released from hospital.

"We have spoken to two of his friends who contacted us but we are still trying to trace the man himself to check he is well.

"I do not believe any arrests were made in connection with this incident and we have no reported arrests elsewhere."
