Former Manchester United star Eric Cantona has been arrested for allegedly assaulting a man in London, police said.

The Frenchman, infamous for kung fu-kicking a supporter in 1995, was detained after reports of an assault in the Primrose Hill area.

“He was taken into custody and subsequently cautioned for common assault. The victim, a man, did not require medical assistance at the scene.”
