<![CDATA[ Four Brits have been arrested in Madrid ahead of tonight’s Champions League final as Spurs fans complained of being “battered” by police. Footage posted on social media appears to show an officer hit one supporter on the back of the legs in a bar in Madrid city centre.Fan Twitter account COYS NEWS claimed police had “battered” Spurs fans “for no reason”. It came as Spanish police said four Brits were arrested for violence on Friday evening. No further details were made available. Several thousand extra officers, including delegations from Merseyside and London, have been brought in to cope with the additional supporters in Madrid ahead of the final between Tottenham and Liverpool. So far the build-up to the game has been relatively peaceful amid warnings from police that they will take a “robust” approach to bad behaviour. Officers also took measures to close down some outdoor drinking areas shortly after lunch on Friday afternoon in an effort to restrict noise around some of the residential areas. It comes as tens of thousands of English football fans in Spain face the prospect of missing out on watching their team bid for European glory this evening, with fans blaming a shortage of supporter tickets and the decision to ban giant television screens from showing the match. The number of supporters to have arrived in Madrid for the final vastly outnumbers the 16,000 tickets available to both sets of fans.
