For four years, Tommy Robinson was suspended from all football matches after video footage caught him beating an England fan.

During last summer’s Nations League finals, the thug was filmed attacking a Three Lions fan in Portugal and now he is banned from watching any football matches in that time frame at home or abroad.

Bedfordshire Police used the footage to file a civil case against Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon.

For four years, he was issued an order barring him from all regulated football matches, home and abroad” which will include the next two European Championships and the 2022 World Cup in Qatar following England.

Deputy Chief Constable Mark Roberts, the head of the English football police, said: “This is a really positive result.”

Prior to England’s 3-1 loss to the Netherlands in Guimaraes on June 6, 2019, Robinson, 38, was seen punching a fan.

The far-right activist confronted a fan of the Three Lions who said to him, “You do not represent me.”

“Robinson throws a punch. This is from a man trying to become an MEP (Member of the European Parliament).” a witness said.

The fan had been rowdy and violent, Robinson said. “No football banning order here, mate.”No football ban order here, mate.

The comment was believed to relate to a banning order demanded by the Bedfordshire Police over a banner reading “f*** ISIS” branded in France at Euro 2016.

The police said it was inciting hatred against Muslims, but Robinson questioned it successfully.

To secure the order banning him from all matches, the force collaborated with the Football Policing Unit of the nation.

Also ordered to pay £ 3,600 in expenses was Luton-born Robinson.

A court spokeswoman confirmed the warrant for “causing or contributing to violence” was granted.

The convicted football hooligan said after the incident in Portugal: “I was with my wife. If people get physical, I am not going to wait for them to attack me… the man needs to keep his views to himself.”

Last year, Robinson struggled in his attempt to become an MEP, polling just 2.2% of the vote and losing his £5,000 deposit.

In 2011, in a dispute with rival Newport County supporters, he was accused of hooliganism for leading 100 Luton Town fans.

Gary Sweet, CEO of Luton, urged the fans of the Hatters to stop chanting their support for Robinson in 2018.
