Professor Green has said that he thought he was going to die after allegedly being slashed in the neck with a broken bottle.

The rapper told London's Snaresbrook Crown Court yesterday (October 19) that he phoned his mother and grandmother to say goodbye as blood poured from a six-inch wound.

Anthony Jones, 25, is accused of attacking Professor Green - real name Stephen Manderson - after he accidentally bumped into one of his friends at London's Cargo venue in May 2009.

"All I saw was a hand come up to my face and neck, it was his [Jones'] right hand, there was a very warm feeling in my neck," Green said. "I put my hand up and blood was everywhere. I phoned my mother and my grandmother and I said goodbye."

The rapper fought back tears as he showed the court a large scar on the side of his neck, reports The Sun.

"I was scared. I know what happens when people tend to get cut in the neck," he told the court. "I was extremely lucky, nothing lasting, fortunately."

Green said he had drunk three glasses of whiskey on the night, but said he was not drunk.

Jones denies wounding the rapper with intent. The trial continues.
