DIARY: Swedish Embassy PRO pushed into river Seine

Jan Nyberg, head of the press team at Paris's Swedish Embassy, is convalescing this week, having been pushed into the Seine at 1am last Sunday.

Nyberg, who was hospitalised by the fall, describes the incident - he was pushed into the river from a two-metre-high embankment by a random attacker - as 'rather traumatic'.

The attacker was later apprehended by cops and Nyberg has since returned to work, despite ongoing back pain.

He said: 'People told me the man was drunk.'
