A Spanish photographer has claimed that he was assaulted by Fernando Alonso on Thursday in Barcelona.

The incident happened outside the hotel the Ferrari driver was staying at for the Spanish Grand Prix weekend when the photographer, Jordi Martin, tried to get a picture of the two-time world champion along with his girlfriend and Russian model Dasha Kapustina.

Martin denounced Alonso on his Twitter page @jmartin_ibz calling him a “shameful person” and posted a picture of the incident as well.

"You are a disgrace of person!” he mentioned later. "You're the one who sets an example to millions of children?”

Martin claimed that he was pushed against the wall and that the unprovoked episode was witnessed by four fans.

Martin also said that he lost his €6,000 camera as a result as it stopped working after it fell to the ground and was contemplating filing a lawsuit against Alonso.
