Football fan Robert Biggs has pleaded guilty to attacking Sheffield United striker Billy Sharpe after the end of the championship play-off against Nottingham Forest. Biggs, 30, broke into the City Ground after the match on Tuesday and also hit Sharp with the head.
Reports say that Sharpe was not playing in this match due to injury. He was standing outside the field with his hand in his pocket when Biggs hit him, due to which he also got four stitches on his lip. Biggs appeared in Nottingham Magistrates' Court for a trial and pleaded guilty to what prosecutors have called a "stupid act of deliberate violence".
Let us tell you that in the midst of the hearing, Biggs has been told that the allegation of illegally entering the field against him has been completely dropped. Some reports say that protests against Biggs' application for a life ban have not yet begun. Forrest's team has already said that anyone who attacked Sharp should be banned for life.
