Pop star Robbie Williams was attacked in a bar brawl which left one of his friends stabbed, it was reported today.

The singer was hit over the head with a chair in a 20-man punch-up in the upmarket resort of St Tropez in the South of France.

He had been staying in the town on a three-week holiday with former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell, who was not present at the brawl.

Robbie was drinking with 10 friends in a bar when three men began taunting him, according to reports.

A waiter at the bar, Le Gorille, said: "Tables were being pulled up and everyone was fighting. It was likely being in a Western film but more serious.

"A chair was smashed over Robbie and one of his friends was stabbed," he told The Sun.

Robbie was said to have emerged from the brawl "completely unscathed" but a friend is believed to have needed treatment for stab wounds to his leg.

The star, who had a number one hit earlier this month with Rock DJ, later flew to Germany to perform at a concert.

Police were called to the bar but no arrests were made.
