"I felt I was going to be attacked".
Bristol Crown Court has heard Mr Hales kicked Mr Ali in the head and stamped on him as he lay on the ground, with Mr Stokes then knocking out Mr Hale.
Witnesses described seeing a group of men acting like "football hooligans" and dialled 999. He told police: "Because he was abusing my two friends for being gay".
Judge Blair told jurors they must consider the defendants' good character describing Mr Stokes as a "man of national reputation" and Ryan Ali as working for the emergency services.
