According to The Mirror, Bronson, now 61 and a diehard Tottenham Hotspur fan, reacted badly after the Gunners defeated Hull City at Wembley to break their nine-year trophyless streak.

In a letter dated May 19 to friend Kate Kray, the ex-wife of London gangster Ronnie Kray, Bronson wrote:

"Not good news. I've had another rumble. This time with a dozen riot mob on the yard!

"Obviously I had my reasons and I'd sooner swallow teeth than my pride. Sadly I came off worst - got smashed up ribs. Life goes on Kate! You won't hear me moan!

"It was sunny! A scorcher! Arsenal was playing Hull. I so wanted Hull to win, coz I'm Spurs.

"I got Lurpak and spread it on thick. Then a small cloud appeared. I swear I see Ron's face. It was eerie. Go on son, let 'em have it!"


The incident at Full Sutton Prison in York came just months after he allegedly attacked a prison governor at Woodhill Prison in Milton Keynes for criticising his artwork.

Bronson first went to prison in 1974, at the age of 22, and has only spent four months of the past 40 years outside of prison, with 36 of those years spent in solitary confinement.
