A bus carrying Fenerbahce football players has been attacked on a highway in northern Turkey. The bus driver was wounded and is in hospital.

The attack tonight came after the team's 5-1 win over the Black Sea side Caykur Rizespor.

Abdulcelil Oz, the governor of Trabzon, said the driver appeared to have been hit by a stone, while Fenerbahce TV said the bus was attacked by an assailant with a shotgun.

The players were travelling from the city of Rize to the airport in the neighbouring city of Trabzon, to return to Istanbul.

None of the players was hurt.
