The man attempted to escape as the hotel called for the police, but the hotel manager tackled him a second time.

Speaking to Spanish TV, he said: "I got hold of him again and didn't let go until the police arrived to handcuff him."

The tourist's husband was then taken to the airport by police.

The incident took place at The Carema Club Resort, which is popular with families.
