An England fan who had his ear bitten off after the national side's World Cup loss to Uruguay claimed he was racially abused by his attacker.
Video footage obtained by the Sunday People showed several men on the top tier of the Arena Corinthians in a melee before one is led away by stewards.
When asked what happened, the victim appears to tell the camera: "He bit off my ear and called me a black ****."
The victim is seen laughing and smiling after the attack despite blood dripping down his neck.
Fan Billy Grant, who the newspaper claims shot the video, can be heard remarking about the assailant: "He's been giving it a large, he's an idiot."
