    In it McDonald, wearing the suit, walks towards the female staff member kicking her once before knocking her to the ground with a punch.

    He has now admitted to actual bodily harm and violent disorder, a judge heard.

    McDonald now also has been revealed by the Daily Mail to be a blackbelt martial artist with a number of wins to his name.

    Joining Spider-Man-clad McDonald were other foolish attackers dressed up as the likes of Ali-G and Little Red Riding Hood.

    From Northampton, McDonald is understood to have trained at the Black Dragon Martial Arts Academy and claims to have competed in the ISKA Kickboxing World Championship' in 2016 in Stuttgart, Germany.

    A four-week trial into the actions of McDonald and others as part of the act of violence had been due to take place at Kingston-upon-Thames Crown Court, but the judge heard yesterday (March 6), that all crucial participants in proceedings had admitted their guilt.

    The horrific action had been created by a group called Live Madness Replays, with many of its participants all members of the same martial arts group.

    It was led by George O'Boyle, 30, who had himself dressed up as Ali G, as he walked into the supermarket with a group of his blue followers.

    Members of staff were hit with metal bars and booted.

    Another attacker, 19-year-old martial artist Sophie Roberts, punched supervisor Lauren Scott in the face. McDonald then came over and knocked her unconscious.
