Stabbed Spurs fan recovering in Rome hospital

A Tottenham Hotspur fan is recovering in hospital after being stabbed when a gang of 50 Italian hooligans stormed a bar in Rome and attacked supporters of the English football team.

Spurs fans were drinking in the Drunken Ship pub before last night's Europa League game with Lazio when trouble flared.

Italian sources told the Press Association that Tottenham fan Ashley Mills, in his mid-twenties and believed to have been stabbed, was seriously injured during the attack and was being treated in hospital.

A spokeswoman for Rome police said Mr Mills had received injuries to his "skull and thigh", was "not in danger of death" and would be kept in hospital for observation.
