A teenager in Northampton believed he was US President Barrack Obama after a cheek wound suffered in an altercation turned septic.

Tatenda Kamasho, 19, was stabbed and then bitten on the cheek by 18-year-old Jordan Sinclair in a fight in McDonald’s in June of this year.

The infection that followed though saw Kamasho drop into a psychotic state in which he suffered god delusions and believed he was the Commander-in-Chief.

Judge Richard Bray told Sinclair, before he sentenced him to five years behind bars:

‘The injuries had disastrous consequences for him. He developed a serious infection, was in a coma for five days and the doctors describe them as life-threatening.

‘The prognosis is uncertain. I appreciate you did not intend to cause injuries that serious.

'However, you have to take the consequences of what followed.’
