FOOTBALL- A fan of football club Tottenham Hotspur was arrested on Monday for throwing a banana skin at Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang during Sunday’s match.

Arsenal won 4-2 against Tottenham. One fan hurled a banana peel from the away end as Aubameyang celebrated scoring in front of the Tottenham fans.

“Behaviour such as this is completely unacceptable and the supporter in question will be issued with a ban,” a Tottenham spokesman said.

Former Arsenal and England forward Ian Wright said, “It’s not only embarrassed Spurs but it has embarrassed the Premier League because it has gone around the world, and now Spurs have to deal with that and have that tainting all over them. It’s really unfortunate to see.”

Six other supporters were also arrested. Action will soon be taken against them all.
