Chelsea fan banned indefinitely for racist abuse of Spurs' Son

Chelsea have announced a season ticket holder has been banned indefinitely after Tottenham's Heung-Min Son was allegedly racially abused during the 2-2 draw between the sides at Stamford Bridge last Sunday.

"Following our statement this week on racist abuse at the Tottenham game last Sunday, Chelsea Football Club can confirm that it has identified and banned a season ticket holder indefinitely," read the statement on the Chelsea website.

Earlier this week, a spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police told Sky Sports News: "A man has been identified following an incident during the Chelsea v Tottenham game at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, 14 August.

The man attended a south London police station on Wednesday, 17 August. He is now the subject of an ongoing investigation by the MPS Football Crime Team. Enquiries continue."

Chelsea had pledged to take the "strongest action" after an alleged racist incident. The club have previously handed out life bans to supporters found guilty of racial abuse at Stamford Bridge.

A statement released on Thursday read: "Chelsea Football Club finds any form of discriminatory behaviour totally abhorrent. It has no place at Chelsea or in any of our communities.

Chelsea FC has consistently made its zero tolerance position on discriminatory behaviour very clear, yet there are still idiots like this that attach themselves to this club as so-called 'fans', which shames Chelsea FC, our coaches, players, staff and our true supporters.

"We are investigating this incident and, if identified, this individual will face the strongest action from the club
