Facts Check Analysis: A former Eurotunnel boss sobbed in court as the man who pushed him on to the tracks of the London Underground was found guilty of attempted murder. The incident happened on 27th April, 2018.
Sir Robert Malpas, 91 years ol, said he felt himself "flying" on to the rails at Marble Arch station, after Paul Crossley, 46, shoved him from behind with both hands.
CCTV footage of the attack drew gasps from the public gallery in the Old Bailey when it was played in court for the first time.
Sir Robert, who was knighted by the Queen in 1998, was rescued by heroic passer-by Riyad El Hussani, who leapt from the platform to save him as the electronic arrivals board showed just one minute until the next train.
But the retired industrialist was left with a fractured pelvis and a gash to the head requiring 12 stitches after the attack on April 27.
A second Tube passenger, Tobias French, managed to keep his balance when he was earlier pushed by Crossley as a train pulled in to Tottenham Court Road station.
Crossley told jurors his victims were chosen at random but claimed he had not intended to kill them. But he was found guilty of two counts of attempted murder on Friday.
