An England fan has had a cardiac arrest after being chased and beaten by a vicious mob of Russian fans in Marseille, according to reports.
Paramedics battled to stabilise the man before he was rushed to hospital in an ambulance, eyewitnesses said.
The medical drama unfolded amid shocking scenes of violence in Marseille as England and Russian fans fought running battles in the streets.
French media said the fan was English and described him as “between life and death”.
At least five other fans were reported to be injured in clashes today.
A gang of 20 or so Russian fans all clad in black have been hunting the English in horrifying scenes – with one man filmed being punched and kicked on the ground as French police watched.
The Russian gang emerged from a side street and walked into main square.
They looked for English fans to fight but no-one would take them on. They then chased English fans everywhere.
One England fan was jumped by a gang of Russian hooligans after getting split up from his friends.
Cops fired tear gas to send the crowd scattering to the side streets.
