MADRID - A Spanish judge handed an eight-month jail sentence to John Tomic, father of Australian tennis player Bernard Tomic, for headbutting his son’s French training partner. John was sentenced for the assault outside a Madrid hotel in May, in which he broke Thomas Drouet’s nose and knocked him out. “I sentence the accused Ivica Tomic as the author of a crime of bodily harm... to a penalty of eight months’ prison,” wrote judge Jacobo Vigil Levi in a ruling, referring to the Bosnian-born defendant by his official name. Tomic could appeal to two higher courts before sentence is made definitive. He will not serve jail time, however, as the sentence is less than two years and he has no previous convictions in Spain. If the sentence is confirmed, he will have to pay small legal costs. –AFP
