Wayne Lineker breaks social media silence after being 'knocked out cold' by punch in Ibiza

Wayne Lineker breaks social media silence after being 'knocked out cold' by punch in Ibiza

He's not posted about the attack yet

Wayne Lineker has made his first social media post since a video of him being punched unconscious started doing the rounds online.

The 62-year-old was caught on camera arguing with a group of men outside Eden Bar, San Antonio, when one of them appeared to throw a punch at Lineker and knock him out.

Further footage showed him on the ground as one of the group mockingly counted him out while other people went over to check if he was alright.

According to the Daily Mirror, Lineker was unconscious for around six minutes after the punch in the early hours of Wednesday (12 June) morning.

They report that an 18-year-old witness to the attack said Lineker and another man had started arguing after someone started annoying a female friend of the 62-year-old's who was in her 20s.

A witness told The Sun that Lineker was unconscious for even longer than reported elsewhere, claiming: "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 for about 20 minutes at least. 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."

Taking to social media for the first time since the attack, Lineker sent a message to Instagram.

However, his post made no mention of the incident, which people have been wondering about and he has not yet posted about that.

Instead, he posted a somewhat embarrassing birthday wish to his son Freddie and praised his DJing skills.

Lineker wrote: "Sorry @freddie_lineker you won’t like me for this but as a dad it’s very special… Happy 20th birthday to my special handsome boy and superstar DJ… keep doing what’s you’re doing.

"Big things coming your way and to your credit without any help from me!! 'Dad I got this, Appreciate you wanting to help me but I need to do this myself.' So proud of you when you said this to me. Love you #my boy."

Lineker, the brother of footballing legend Gary, recently offered Manchester City star Jack Grealish the chance to work at his Ocean Beach club in Ibiza for four weeks after Grealish wasn't picked to be part of England's Euro 2024 squad.

He also claimed that of the famous faces to show up at his club, Conor McGregor and KSI were the biggest spenders.
