Bad attack of Thai
A THAI badminton player has been banned for two years after a furious mid-match attack on an opponent.
Bodin Issara was hit with the lengthy suspension by the Badminton World Federation after assaulting Maneepong Jongjit.
A video clip of the clash – showing Issara chasing his former doubles partner before punching and kicking him in the head – became a worldwide internet hit.
Jongjit was also suspended for three months for his part in the incident, during the Canada Open in July.
The pair, who played together at the London 2012 Olympics, ended their partnership earlier this year.
