A man has been charged in connection with an alleged assault on the Hearts goalkeeper during the latest Edinburgh derby.

Zdenek Zlamal was floored by an apparent attack from a supporter during the goalless Scottish Premiership match at Tynecastle Park on Wednesday.

Police Scotland said a 21-year-old has been charged and is to appear in court.

Meanwhile, a 26-year-old has also been charged after a 70-year-old woman was seriously injured in a separate football-related incident.

It happened on Westfield Road, near Murrayfield Stadium, on Sunday.

Hearts were defeated on the day by Celtic in the semi-final of the Scottish League Cup.

Inquiries into other incidents that occurred during the league match at Tynecastle are ongoing.
