Russian Hooligan Wears GoPro During Rampage Through Marseille.. Publishes Footage

A Russian hooligan wore a GoPro camera as he went on a rampage around Marseille and went on to publish footage of violent attacks on English fans.

The video was published on YouTube earlier today and gives further insight into the unsavoury scenes which marred the first few days of Euro 2016.

It appears that the camera is strapped to his chest and drops down to face his feet for the majority of the recording while he runs around the streets of Marseille with hundreds of fellow Russian hooligans looking for English supporters.

At several points the man can be seen attacking men on the ground and regularly throws objects at those he’s attacking.

What makes it even more shocking to see is the way the hooligans run their way through several battles looking for their next target and at no point throughout the six-minute video do they run into French police.

The upbeat music suggests whoever was wearing the GoPro and uploaded the footage doesn’t find the content of it as serious as those on the receiving end of the attacks:

Warning: some of the scenes in this video are extremely violent

For all the criticism English fans have had so far this tournament, this video certainly lends itself to the theory that Russian hooligans arrived in Marseille looking for a fight.
