The groom, Sheridan Knight, wrote on Facebook on Wednesday: & # 39; This is the most painful thing I've ever had to write.

& # 39; I cannot put my devastation and upset into words, my heart is broken, we have left with my best friends to celebrate a party, because I got a hunger.

& # 39; Matt you were really one in a million, I have made some of the best memories of my life with you and I will never forget that.

Medici took Mr. Jeffery to a local hospital where he was treated for serious head injury before being brought to Athens by air bridge the next day for specialist treatment.

He was placed there in intensive care before the British Ministry of Foreign Affairs confirmed his death on Thursday.

The attackers, also reported British, fled the scene but were traced by the police with the help of footage of the attack filmed by a passerby, Kathimerini reports.

Footage shows a man wearing a T-shirt approached by two other men without a shirt, one of which hits him in the head.

The man then falls backwards from the sidewalk and into the road.
