A former footballer faces jail after he admitted stabbing his ex-girlfriend.
Peter Mendham admitted stabbing his ex-girlfriend
Ex-Norwich City midfielder Peter Mendham of Trowse, Norfolk, pleaded guilty to wounding with intent when he appeared at Norwich Crown Court.
Mr Mendham, 46, was arrested in October last year after police were called to his home, where they found 39-year-old Charlotte Hyam with serious wounds.
Judge Paul Downes adjourned sentencing until 19 February, but warned Mendham a prison term was almost inevitable.
Mendham, who has also represented England, denied a charge of attempted murder which will be left on the file.
The professional footballer played more than 260 games for Norwich between 1976 and 1987, helping the club win the Milk Cup in 1985.
He now works as a fundraiser for an air ambulance.
