Cornell, who has a pregnant girlfriend, claimed he threw a plastic cup in self-defence after being attacked by a gang of masked Russian hooligans.

He said: “A group of 15 lads put gloves and balaclavas on and ran to us and started to throw punches. I was very scared so we backed off.

“I had a plastic cup which I threw and that was it. I’m not a criminal I’ve never been in court before.

“The last four days in prison have been hell. It’s been awful in there. I just want to go home and see my girlfriend and keep my job and my house. I am sorry and I do apologise.”
