Sead Kolasinac has taken to Twitter to share a new photo with Mesut Ozil after the pair were attacked by knife-wielding thugs in London.
In a viral video, Ozil’s childhood friend and Bosnian international, Kolasinac was filmed fighting the knife-wielding moped thugs with his bare hands as they attempted to steal the Mercedes G-Class SUV they were driving in. Watch the video here.
A witness to the shocking attack told MailOnline: ‘Ozil looked absolutely terrified, as anybody would after being chased by men with knives.
‘He looked like he was running for his life. And I suppose he was.
‘I saw him disappear into the restaurant with the motorcycle guys on his tail.
‘They didn’t take off their helmets and were all in black, wearing long sleeved tops in this hot weather. They stood out.
‘God knows what would have happened if they’d caught him. It looked to me like he’d have been hacked to shreds and he clearly thought so too.
‘As soon as the restaurant staff started to come to the window and to the doorway, they turned around and roared off.
Help later came after Ozil abandoned his car in the middle of the road and fled on foot into the Turkish restaurant Likya.
The Waiters and chefs at the restaurant then ran to his defense as they took to the street to chase away the attackers before Police arrived at the scene.
