Gary Lineker’s brother Wayne, 62, gets knocked out by yob in 4am brawl outside Ibiza nightclub

Gary Lineker’s brother Wayne, 62, gets knocked out by a yob in a 4am brawl which took place outside an Ibiza nightclub.

Video footage has surfaced of Wayne dropping to group after being struck while he reportedly was attempting to defend a female friend during a night out.

This took place outside the Eden Bar and had been out cold for around six minutes with blood pouring from his mouth, eye-witnesses claim.

Wayne is seen raising his arm in an attempt to protect himself as an individual runs at him and strikes him.

A group of at least 10 individuals, including Wayne, get into a chaotic exchange of shouting.

One witness said to The Sun the two men had started arguing after the attacker and his mates began pestering Wayne’s female pal, in her 20s.

As Wayne attempted to get a taxi, the man – with a group of six friends – squared up to him and slammed the door shut.

Moments later, he then hits Wayne in the chin and quickly makes his way away from the scene.

It’s said that he was knocked out at around 4.04am. before coming back around around six minutes later at 4.10am.

An 18-year-old Welsh student who saw what happened said, per The Sun: “It was horrible – he looked like he could have been dead at one point.

“Wayne just fell on the floor and the man and his friends ran off. He was completely unconscious.

“He wasn’t really speaking much when he did eventually come back round.

“I stayed to help him and the police turned up but they weren’t there for long and didn’t really do much and left quickly.”

Wayne eventually left in a taxi around an hour after the punch was thrown.

@JoshBigs: I’ve never been Wayne Linekers biggest fan but this is fuckin sly, minding his own business and he was clearly walking away with his hands up he didn’t want any trouble. Gang of little bully rats.

@BriersGary: He’s an old man. Just walk away.

@paulwood1987: Not a fan of the guy think he’s a bit weird. This is taking liberties though guys 62 ffs

@RepublicOfWales: Whoever sparked Wayne Lineker last night deserves a slap. You’re in your early 20s and knocked out a 62yr old man. That make you a bit of c**t in my book

@jimmy_sowden: Wayne Lineker getting knocked when you see’s he’s 62 is disgusting , it’s also disgusting to surround yourself with a bunch of kids that are of the age to be his grandkids whilst taking selfies with them ,you can be offended by both

@acacia_jude: What the hell had gone off there?

@miakilgourx: that’s sad man he’s like 70
