Wealdstone Raider claims he was knocked out and put in a coma after being punched in the head while running for a bus | The Sun

THE MAN dubbed the “Wealdstone Raider” has claimed that he was knocked out and put in a coma after being attacked.

The 56-year-old Gordon Hill became an internet sensation in 2013 when a clip of him squaring up to a rival fan while watching his local team, who are in the National League, went viral.

He was watching his beloved Wealstone when he famously asked his foe: “You want some?”

That was after he had been tamely confronted after singing “you've got no fans, you've got no ground”.

Hill cashed in on his fame with a number of public appearances, including confronting Tyson Fury.

However, his internet popularity also resulted in him allegedly receiving a number of threats and abuse after his phone number was posted online.

And during a previous interview with Vice, Hill says that he was punched in the head by a stranger while running for a bus, an attack which led him in a coma.

He said: “It was constant hate. Trolls and death threats.

“There are some horrible people out there.

“I’ve been assaulted. I got knocked out and put in a coma. I had a bleed on the brain. It’s not all champagne and red carpets.”

Hill has twice tried his hand in the music industry since he shot to fame, last year featuring in a World Cup song called “We’re All Here Together” spearheaded by Wealdstone’s president while his first was a track named “Got No Fans” in 2014.

Two years ago he was arrested and released by British Transport Police on suspicion of being drunk and disorderly during England's European Championship quarter final win over Ukraine.
