Farense footballer Tavinho, who was rushed to Faro Hospital in “serious condition” on Monday after being stabbed in the neck outside a Vilamoura bar, has been pictured “awake and smiling” in a hospital bed. The photo was posted online by the Farense futsal team a day after Tavinho’s alleged attacker was remanded in custody.

Says Correio da Manhã tabloid, the attack happened after Nelson Miguel Sousa, also known as ‘Periquito’, was refused entry at a bar in Vilamoura.
