Australian rugby sevens captain James Stannard is in stable condition in a Sydney hospital with head injuries after being punched by a man outside a restaurant early on Friday morning.
The 35-year-old hit his head on a footpath and fractured his skull as a result of the assault, and was taken to hospital, where he remains conscious and in a stable condition.
Police say Stannard was standing outside the kebab shop when he was allegedly punched in an unprovoked assault, causing him to fall and strike his head on the pavement.
Several members of the Australian sevens team witnessed the attack, with Lewis Holland, Ben O'Donnell and the coach running after the attacker and detaining him until police arrived.
Rugby Australia (RA) later identified Stannard as the victim of the attack and said they were co-operating with police.
In the seconds after Stannard was assaulted the trio chased down his assailant and held him until police arrived.
"Every indication is that there will be no long-term damage to James, he'll be fine", he said. However, he has sustained head injuries.
However, he said Stannard was likely to wait until Sunday to return home.
