Sky Sports Commentator Martin Tyler Punched At Football Game

There have been reports that Sky Sports commentator Martin Tyler was punched by a football fan at a game last night.

Tyler, 72, did commentary with Gary Neville at the Emirates for Manchester City's 2-0 win over Arsenal on Sunday and was in Wealdstone as they hosted his side Woking, where he is assistant coach.

The hosts scored a late 85th minute winner from the spot in the and it's alleged that a home supporter approached the dugout and struck Tyler from behind.

David Richardson, who writes for the Non-League Paper, tweeted Woking manager Alan Dawson's comments on the matter:

The assailant has yet to be identified but of course Paddy Power were quick to make a Wealdstone Raider reference.

However, it couldn't have been the little fella as he was over on a stag do giving out a massage.

Tyler has been involved in clubs such as Walton & Hersham, Kingstonian and Hampton & Richmond Borough Football Club but now finds himself volunteering with his beloved Woking.

Many football fans think he's a Liverpool or United fan but according to Tyler himself, he's only ever had an affiliation for one team.

"I don't do social media and this is one of the reasons why. They all think I support somebody. I support Woking and I am quite happy to say that." he said in an interview with The Mirror earlier this year.

"I first went to Woking when I was eight years old and it was the first football I had ever seen, I'm still in touch with the club although I coach at a level just below them so it's difficult to see them too much now. They've always been my team.
