Cisse admits hitting boy on head

A Liverpool footballer has admitted hitting a 15-year-old boy and accepted a police caution for assault.

The teenager told police he was struck on the head by Frenchman Djibril Cisse, 24, at a park in the Docklands area of east London, on 30 September.

It is understood Cisse was filming an advert featuring a mock-up of a match between France and England when the boy appeared to try to shake hands.

Instead, the boy put his thumb to his nose and wiggled his fingers.

A Metropolitan Police spokeswoman said the caution was for common assault and no further action would be taken.

Cisse joined the European Champions in 2004 for 14m.
