Russian internationals Aleksandr Kokorin and Pavel Mamaev will be detained in jail until December 8 while they await a ruling over charges of “hooliganism”.

The crime carries a penalty of up to five years in prison, according to Russian news agencies.

The two were detained earlier this week after video footage emerged showing the men attacking two Russian trade ministry officials in an upmarket Moscow cafe.

One of the officials was hit with a chair while eating a meal – his lawyer claimed he received a concussion.

In a separate incident, the footballers attacked the driver of a television host and damaged her Mercedes.

The driver was hospitalised.
