The John Tomic saga continued in a Madrid court today. Per The Australian:
“He grabbed me and he pulled me around to him, and he tried to hit me and then he fell, I don’t know how he fell,” Tomic Snr said.
“There were some people there and I said ‘he hit me’, he fell down I don’t know how. Then I went into the hotel reception and I saw Bernard and I say to him ‘he hit me and fell down I don’t know how’.”
When he was asked whether it was true he admitted to police hitting Drouet, Tomic Snr burst into tears with audible sobs and wiping away tears said it was not true.
“I never said I hit him … they had a translator on the phone … they all spoke bad English, I didn’t hit him and I didn’t say I hit him,” he said.
