A man has been found guilty of headbutting former Manchester United midfielder Roy Keane during a "gratuitous and senseless act of violence".

Scott Law, 43, of Waltham Abbey, Essex, attacked the football pundit following Arsenal's 3-1 victory over Mr Keane’s former club in September last year.

The former Ireland captain had been working for Sky Sports at the Emirates Stadium in north London when he was assaulted, Highbury Corner Magistrates' Court heard.

Law was handed a three-year football banning order and ordered to complete 80 hours of unpaid work. He was also told to pay legal costs of £650 plus a victim surcharge of £114.
