In the wake of claims of a clash between Spanish police and Man City fans prior to the club's Champions League match against Real Madrid, camera-phone footage has emerged of the incident.
Natalie Pike, a matchday presenter for City but in the Spanish capital as a fan, tweeted about the disturbance at a bar.
An hour before kick-off she tweeted: "Just watched spanish police batter city fans.
A big group of about 100 of us outside a bar opposite the stadium and they tore in battons up."
What a shame to loose the game in the last few minutes, very grateful to the fans at bernabeu for showing their support
Thanks to the huge number of travelling fans. This game will give us the desire to improve again. Eventually we will get there. #MCFC
Man City colossus Yaya Toure gave credit to City's Spanish conquerors.
