Manchester United manager Sir Alice Ferguson has been seriously hurt in an attack outside a London railway station on Monday.
The Scot, who, himself, is usually the one doing the 'assaulting', was injured when a member of the public tackled him from behind when nobody was looking, in the totally unprovoked attack.
The man, believed to be in his forties, and who may have been Portuguese was also hurt in the incident. He was arrested and taken to a police station nearby. He will appear at Westminster magistrates court today charged with 'assaulting a celebrity'.
The Football Association is also thought to be considering a serious misconduct charge, and has contacted London Transport for the CCTV footage, so that it can review the video evidence of the tackle.
Sir Alice is currently recovering at St Badloser's Hospital in central London, and will rest there for several more days. He is expected to make a surprisingly quick recovery in time to shout his mouth off before, during and after Saturday's match with Everton at Goodison Park.
Doctor Carlos Queiros, who 'takes care of business' for the United boss, said:
"He is like Captain Scarlet. I mean...indestructible."
