Shortly after it is claimed the bouncers attacked him, leaving him with a broken nose and bruises.

The ONG Valencia Acoge, an anti-racism campaign group praised the man for reporting the incident, hoping it would encourage other members of minority groups to speak out against racism.

The nightclub has denied its staff were involved, claiming it was other customers that dished out the abuse.
