Euro 2016 Attack: Russian in French custody over England fan attack.
A Russian man was taken into custody in Marseille over an attack at the Euro 2016 where an English football fan was severely injured.
The 31-year-old suspect was handed over to France by Germany, where he was arrested last month. He wasn’t named.
If convicted, he could face up to 15 years in jail for attempted homicide and grievous bodily harm.
Police say, Andrew Bache, 51, suffered fractured bones and injuries to the lungs and brain on 11 June 2016.
Mr Bache, from Portsmouth, suffered severe brain injuries and needed to be placed in an induced coma, from which he has since emerged.
German federal police previously said the Russian suspect was identified after a joint investigation with British police over the course of nearly a year-and-a-half.
He was arrested on 21 February during a flight change at Munich airport, while on his way to Bilbao in Spain for a Europa League match.
