Former British Olympian Winston Gordon was hit in the foot by a ricocheting bullet as police gunned down one of the five terrorists in Cabrils. Gordon, 40, who has competed for Team GB in three Olympic games was enjoying a late night beer with eight friends when he was caught up in the crossfire.

Gordon said a piece of shrapnel, apparently from one of the bullets, sliced through the skin on his left foot, leaving blood pouring from a wound.

Seconds later the terrorist, who was wearing a fake suicide belt over his orange shirt, was lying dead on the ground.  The terrorist was one of five men who were in an Audi A3 which ploughed into people walking on the seafront in Cambrils at around 1am.

Four of the gang who were wielding knives were shot by a single policeman at the scene while the fifth man ran around 200 metres up the road. Gordon who was in Cambrils to help out at an international judo camp, said: 'I was with six or seven friends when two girls ran in looking really scared. 

The 40-year old British coach is working in Bayern for quite some years training the talents in the South of Germany.
