A MAN who attacked a woman from behind in Spain while his pal filmed it for a video that went viral has been forced to pay his victim €60,000 in compensation.
In the video the 48-year-old woman can be seen falling awkwardly backwards to the ground.
She was unable to work for 75 days after the attack because of cervical pain and injuries to her ankle, knee and wrist.
Mario Garcia Montealegre, kicked the legs of the woman from under her in Barcelona in February 2015 while his friend Alvaro Gragera videoed it and then uploaded it to social networks.
The attacker presented himself to police when he learned they had issued a public appeal to find him.
The prosecutor had called for a jail sentence and fine for both the attacker and the person who recorded it.
