Tabarez's wife suffers acid attack

The wife of Uruguay coach Oscar Tabarez has been taken to hospital after an attacker threw acid over her as she walked home in Montevideo.

Silvia Martinez, the 61-year-old wife of Tabarez, was admitted to hospital with burns to 25% of her body - including her face and arms - after a motorbike passenger covered her in what police called a "corrosive liquid".

"They didn't steal anything. They threw the liquid while slowing down and then sped off," Montevideo police spokesman Jose Luis Rondan said. "They didn't shove her, or insult her, nothing."

Martinez has previously received death threats, but the motive for the attack is still unknown.
