British boxing champion Jamie Moore is recovering in hospital after he was gunned down in Spain.

The former European light-middleweight champion was shot in Marbella after leaving a party in the early hours of Sunday morning (03Aug14).

Moore, 35, who has retired from boxing to become a trainer, was hit in the leg and hip and underwent surgery to treat his injuries.

He has received messages of support from fellow boxers including Amir Khan and Ricky Hatton.

Police in Spain are investigating the incident and believe Moore might have been shot in a case of mistaken identity.
