A 43-year-old British tourist has been arrested in Mallorca after coughing in diners faces and saying he had COVID-19 at several restaurants.

Punters and bar owners called police after the ‘visibly drunk’ man wandered around terraces in Palma de Mallorca last Monday at 11pm.

The suspect fled on foot when Policia Nacional agents arrived, according to a statement, before he had to be held down by several officers.

The Brit will face criminal charges including resisting arrest.

Health authorities today revealed he had tested negative to a coronavirus test.

He has been released on bail pending trial.
