Jack Grealish was hit in the head this afternoon

Aston Villa player Jack Grealish has been attacked by a fan who ran on to the pitch during a Championship match.

He was punched in the side of the head from behind less than 10 minutes into the match against Birmingham.

He recovered to score the winner in their derby match with Birmingham in the Championship.

The spectator, who was wearing a flat cap, was restrained by stewards as other Villa players tried to intervene.

 

 

He blew kisses to the crowd while being led away by police.

 

West Midlands Police released a statement saying:

"Following the incident on the pitch involving an attack on an Aston Villa player, a man has been arrested and is en route to a custody block."

A spokesperson for the English Football League (EFL) said it condemned the "mindless actions" of the attacker.
