Video: CCTV of Slater attack released

Billy Slater punched

The second Slater was sucker-punched by an intoxicated Mancunian

The CCTV footage showing Australian full-back Billy Slater getting attacked outside a Manchester bar on Saturday night has been released.

It clearly shows the 30-year-old returning to Mojo on Bridge Street to fetch a coat he left behind. He went to the head of the queue to enquire and was immediately confronted for pushing in by a visibly intoxicated 40-year-old.

As the video shows, the local in question takes a cowardly swipe at Slater when he looks away, just seconds after receiving a friendly pat.

He clearly did not realise he was up against one of the most highly-tuned athletes in world sport and the full-back duly retaliated, almost knocking the Mancunian over.
