The sentencing of Welsh international rugby star Ian Gough for attacking his ex-girlfriend, former Miss Wales Sophia Cahill, has been adjourned until Thursday.

Gough shoved Ms Cahill into the passenger door of his campervan outside her home in London, aggravating injuries she had from a car accident.

Ms Cahill told Croydon Magistrates' Court in July she was "shocked and upset" and fled back into her house.

Gough, from Swansea, denied assault.

Sentencing had been adjourned until Tuesday for a probation report to be prepared but the case has now been put off until Thursday.

Gough made 64 appearances for the Wales rugby union team and currently plays for Newport Dragons.
