(Reuters) - A Nottingham Forest fan who head-butted Sheffield United captain Billy Sharp during a pitch invasion has been jailed for 24 weeks and been handed a 10-year football banning order, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said on Thursday.

The CPS authorised charges of assault occasioning actual bodily harm and Biggs pleaded guilty."This was an extremely serious and unprovoked assault with a professional footballer standing at the side of the pitch left requiring stitches," Marianne Connally from the CPS said.
