A lottery winner and former professional cage fighter has admitted attacking his girlfriend three months after he won £1m.

Gavin Davies, 29, from Ammanford, Carmarthenshire, hit Daniah Hussain, 22, more than 50 times in the assault in April.

Davies pleaded guilty to actual bodily harm and a common assault charge dating back to last December.

He was remanded in custody and will be sentenced at Swansea on 13 July.

Motoring fan Davies bought three luxury cars after his lottery win in January - including a Lamborghini LP560-4.

Swansea Crown Court heard that on the day of the attack, Davies and Miss Hussain were in his "everyday" Audi when they started arguing.

Prosecutor Catherine Richards said: "It was a prolonged assault involving spitting and he hit her more than 50 times.

"The victim suffered swelling and bruising above the eye and around the neck.

'Terrible ordeal'

"She contacted police to say she had to have her nose realigned."

Miss Hussain, the mother of Davies' five-month old son, has left their new home and is living at a secret address in the area.

The court heard Davies had previous convictions for motoring offences.

He was revealed as a £1m National Lottery winner at a news conference in a Swansea hotel in January.

He posed for pictures alongside a Lamborghini provided by lottery operator Camelot, but he later bought his own, saying it was his dream car.

Speaking after the court case, a family spokesman said: "This has been a terrible ordeal for all of us."
