Update 6 September: I’ve closed the post to comments and archived (not deleted) those already submitted because there’s quite a bit of speculation involved, and some of it is somewhat potentially libellous. None the less, apart from those sending best wishes and recognizing that this is unusual for Tenerife, let alone the Golf del Sur, witnesses and neighbours are saying that there was clearly a “party” of sorts which degenerated into a brawl around 7am when the Guardia Civil arrived. The street was soon cordoned off and a further 20 police arrived. The actual original aggression is evidently far from clear, and there is at least one suggestion that the stabbing was carried out in self-defence. All of this is based on comments made to this post over the last couple of days, and not officially confirmed one way or another at present.
Original post 4 September: After much speculation on social media this morning about an incident in Las Adelfas/Sunningdale Village on the Golf del Sur, Sky News has confirmed that British world champion boxer Kell Brook has been stabbed while on holiday in Tenerife. Sky says that it comes less than a month after the 28-year-old clinched his IBF welterweight with an unexpected defeat of American fighter Shawn Porter. Mr Brook is said to have been stabbed in the leg and is not in danger.
