A single mother has been ordered to pay her teenage daughter £500 in damages after she broke her nose during an argument over an Anthony Joshua boxing match.
Theresa Carroll, 39, grabbed college student Chantelle Carroll, 19, by the hair and punched her in the face, breaking her nose.
The argument began after her daughter objected to her inviting friends round to watch the bout on December 12 last year.
During the row, which occurred whilst the family had to abide by Covid Tier 2 restrictions in the village of Bollington, Cheshire, shop worker Carroll rang police to claim her daughter was being aggressive only for the teenager to grab the handset from her.
In the ensuing struggle, Chantelle was pulled to the floor and left nursing a bloodied nose.
Chantelle began to film her mother shouting: "Get out of my house" before retorting: 'Smile for the camera' and adding: "I don't want to see you again!"
The teenager, who is currently studying sports science at Nottingham Trent University, was later treated for her broken nose at A&E in Macclesfield General Hospital.
Chantelle has not spoken to her mother since the attack almost exactly a year ago.

Mother-of-three Carroll, who admitted common assault, tried to reach out to her daughter urging her to reconcile saying she still had Christmas presents to give her from last year, Stockport magistrates heard.
But the mother was issued with a restraining order banning her from contacting her daughter for a year.
The incident occurred after Carroll had invited friends round to watch heavyweight champion Joshua defeat Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev by a knockout to defend his IBF, WBA and WBO belts.

Chantelle had been working all day at a hotel and was said to be angry as she wanted the 'house to herself.'
Defence lawyer Peter Casson said: "On this day, it was not her intention to have a fight with her.
"She was looking forward to having some friends around in the evening and everything would have been okay but her daughter had different ideas.

"It was a reckless act and she lost the plot in that moment of madness. Her daughter seemed to be taking over her house."
The lawyer added: "She says her daughter is welcome whenever she wants to come back. This is a one-off incident."
Earlier in the case, Nick Smart, prosecuting, said: "In a police interview, she said her daughter had become more and more aggressive towards her. She said she asked her to leave but she would not leave. She said her daughter said 'We are not having anyone around.'

"She felt threatened and called the police on 101. She said: 'I am having friends around' but she said her daughter then grabbed her phone at which point she then admitted to grabbing her hair and pulling her to the floor.
"Chantelle screamed that she did not want any more contact with her. She also said her daughter called her a 'f****** bitch' and claimed that she could have attacked her."
Carroll was also ordered to complete a 12 community order and ordered to complete 120 hours of unpaid work plus 20 rehabilitation activity requirement days. She will also have to pay £180 in costs and surcharges.
