An amateur footballer has been jailed for killing a referee with a single punch after he was booked in a Michigan United Soccer League match.

John Bieniewicz was about to show Bassel Saad a second yellow card and send the 37-year-old mechanic off when Saad knocked the official unconscious.

The referee, 44, died two days after the game in Detroit last June.

Saad pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter and was sentenced on Friday to at least eight years in jail.
