A teenage footballer has been sentenced to at least 18 years behind bars for murdering a man during a "horrific scene of complete bedlam" at Westfield Stratford shopping centre just weeks before the 2012 Olympic Games.
The throwing of a yoghurt pot sparked the mass brawl between two gangs on June 29, 2012, during which Liam Woodards, who had been out celebrating his 24th birthday, was stabbed, the Old Bailey heard.
Nii-Azu Kojo-Smith lunged forward and stabbed him in the chest in front of horrified shoppers.
As the victim lay dying, the fight moved on to Stratford Tube Station where one of Mr Woodards's friends stabbed one of the opposing group.
Following a three-month retrial, Kojo-Smith, 19, of Hackney, east London, was found guilty of Mr Woodards's murder by a majority of 11 to 1.
