The young British police officer who fell victim to a vicious knife attack while supporting Iceland at Euro 2016 in France is to visit the President of Iceland for coffee tomorrow.

Adam Williams was supporting Iceland’s national football team in Paris when he was brutally stabbed in an unprovoked attack. His injuries proved luckily not to be life-threatening.
