Tourist headbutts gondolier in Venice after 'selfie dispute'

A tourist has headbutted and punched a Venetian gondolier in an altercation, reportedly over a selfie.

The incident took place near Ponte dei Bareteri in the San Marco sestiere.

A video shows the man squaring up to the gondolier and knocking his straw hat off, before headbutting him three times and then punching him in the face.

A woman who was part of the same tourist group is heard shouting “Don’t touch him” in Spanish. The gondolier replies: “I’m not touching him”.

The tourist is then heard saying: “I’m going to punch you so hard I’ll take your head off.”
