Spurs, Palace probing alleged racist abuse of Son

Tottenham Hotspur and Crystal Palace are working with London’s Metropolitan Police to investigate an allegation of racial abuse towards Son Heung-Min, both clubs said on Sunday.

Videos on social media appeared to show a fan at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium making a racist gesture towards the South Korea forward as he walked past Palace fans after being substituted in Spurs’ 1-0 win in the Premier League on Saturday.

“We are aware of a video circulating online (as well as reports made directly to us) regarding an individual in the away end at Spurs yesterday, appearing to make racist gestures towards Heung-Min Son,” Palace said in a statement.

“Evidence has been shared with the police, and when he is identified, he will face a club ban. We will not tolerate such behaviour in our club.”

Last year, Chelsea indefinitely banned a season ticket holder following reports that Son was racially abused during a Premier League game at Stamford Bridge.

“We will do everything in our powers to ensure that if found guilty, the individual will receive the strongest possible action – as was the case earlier this season when Son suffered similar racial abuse at Chelsea,” Spurs said.
