A man who killed his best friend in an alcohol-fuelled fight over a football match has walked free from court.
Daniel Janik, a 30-year-old Polish hospital porter, was cleared of murder and manslaughter at the Old Bailey.
The court heard how he and Przemyslaw Lepkowski, a 24-year-old hospital cleaner, watched Chelsea's Champions League final win over Bayern Munich on television, with each of them supporting opposing teams.
Sarah Plaschkes QC, prosecuting, said Lepkowski had suffered 41 injuries after the men got into a drunken brawl and he died of strangulation.
