Former Chelsea FC player Kerry Dixon has been jailed for nine months after being found guilty of assault.
The ex-Blues and England striker was sentenced on Friday (June 19) at Luton Crown Court for attacking a man in a pub.
Jailing the 53-year-old, judge Barbara Mensah said the attack was "shocking and sickening to watch".
Dixon had denied attacking a fellow drinker at the Nags Head pub in Dunstable, Bedfordshire, on May 15.
He had alleged he had acted in self defence but was convicted by a jury after a five-day hearing.
Dixon, who scored 193 goals during his career, signed with Chelsea in 1983 and went on to become the west London's club's third highest goal-scorer of all time, getting 147 goals in his nine years with the Blues.
He left Chelsea in 1992 to join Southampton, and also played for Luton, Millwall, Watford and Doncaster Rovers, whe we was player-manager until his sacking in 1997.
