(Reuters) - A Nottingham Forest fan who head-butted Sheffield United captain Billy Sharp during a pitch invasion has been jailed for 24 weeks and been handed a 10-year football banning order, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said on Thursday.

Robert Biggs, 30, invaded the pitch after Forest won their Championship playoff semi-final against United and made a beeline for Sharp, who was standing by the touchline before he was knocked to the ground.
