An inflatable Trump balloon which has been flown at a number of protests around the world over the past two years has been stabbed and deflated as Trump attended an American football match in Alabama.

The college football game saw fans for both teams playing in the game cheering and supporting the players but also cheering and supporting Trump.

Outside, supporters also showed support for the president’s visit to the state.

The organiser of the group that “adopted” the balloon for the event told police a man with a knife cut an 8ft-long gash in its back, deflating it.

Tuscaloosa police said in a statement that a 32-year-old local man was charged with criminal mischief in the incident.
