A man had his face chewed by a dog in a bar in Nice after watching the Italy-Germany Euro 2012 semi-final last week.

Witness say that at about 11.30pm Thursday, a dog jumped up and bit the face and throat of a man standing in the doorway of the bar.

The dog is thought to belong to a homeless man who usually lives on the street outside the bar.

Emergencies services were called, but the man only sustained minor injuries.

The bar owner told newspaper Nice Matin: “These homeless people have been hanging around outside the bar for years. Even if the police move them on, they always come back.”
