A MARSEILLE coach floored a Nice fan with one punch during the crazy brawl on Sunday night.
Tempers boiled over in chaotic scenes as idiotic fans stormed the pitch during the second half of the Ligue 1 match.
And as one Nice supporter made his way on to the pitch, the backroom staff member dealt with him in emphatic fashion.
Wearing a black T-shirt, shorts and trainers with an orange bib, the coach ran up to the fan, who was wearing a white T-shirt and dark cap.
Catching the spectator completely unaware, he thumped him with a heavy blow to the upper chest area.
It sent the trespassing fan tumbling to the turf as Nice defender Melvin Bard looked on in shock.
The Marseille employee backed away after hitting the fan to avoid any retaliation from the other Nice supporters invading the pitch.
The carnage erupted after a bottle was launched from the stands towards Marseille star Dimitri Payet.

He picked up the missile and lobbed it back towards the crowd of Nice fans.
Payet's team-mates Alvaro Gonzalez and Arsenal loanee Matteo Guendouzi rushed over to back him up, also angrily shouting at the Nice supporters.
That prompted a number of yobs to storm down from the stands and try to FIGHT Marseille stars.
Amazon report that Nice ultras 'drew blood' from former West Ham hero Payet – with Luan Peres and Guendouzi having strangle marks on their necks.
Luckless Peres has been at Marseille less than a month – and has already been burgled prior to being physically assaulted last night.
Images show one moronic fan even launching a KICK at Payet.
And with scores of fans having made their way on to the field of play, the referee had no option but to suspend proceedings before the match was abandoned with Nice leading 1-0.
