Referee sues for £156,000 over testicle attack

A Kenyan referee is suing the country's football federation after his testicles were damaged when they were squeezed by a coach who was angry about a decision.
Martin Wekesa Wamalwa's lawyer said the attack, which happened in September, meant the referee "can no longer enjoy his conjugal rights... following extensive damage to his sexual organs".
He was assaulted by Sparki Youth manager Daudi Kajembe during a match between his side and local rivals Admiral.
Wamalwa was taken to hospital, the game was abandoned, and Kajembe was later arrested.
The official later said: "That was the most gruesome moment of my life. I can never explain the pain, but I am lucky to be alive.
"On that day, I remember I fainted after the guy attacked me, squeezing me dangerously in my sensitive parts. I was affected mentally and physically as well, and became a subject of ridicule in town."
He is suing the federation for 20 million Kenyan shillings (£156,000).
