This is the shocking moment a man was killed by a thug with just a single punch to the head following a row with a cyclist.<br />
<br />
Andrew Young, 40, became embroiled in an argument with Victor Ibitoye after he blasted him for riding his bike on the pavement.<br />
<br />
Just seconds after the altercation Mr Young was approached by Mr Ibitoye's friend, Lewis Gill, who launched a horrific attack on the Asperger's Syndrome sufferer.<br />
<br />
Shocking CCTV footage shows Gill, aged 20, throw a punch at Mr Young that was so forceful he was flung off the pavement and onto the road, striking his head.<br />
<br />
The callous thug is then seen walking away from the man as he lay lifeless on the ground.<br />
<br />
He was rushed from the scene in Bournemouth, Dorset, to Southampton General Hospital in Hampshire where he died the next day.<br />
<br />
A post mortem found no injuries to suggest that the vulnerable victim had tried to defend himself.<br />
<br />
Gill pleaded guilty to one count of manslaughter at Salisbury Crown Court and was jailed for four years and six months.
