Tottenham fan was arrested for throwing a banana skin at Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang during the North London derby on Sunday.

During one of the most emotional match at Emirates, which ended with the Gunners’ victory with the score of 4:2, the police made seven arrests. One of the detainees turned out to be a fan of the Spurs, who threw the banana skin from the stands when Aubameyang was celebrating his goal from a penalty kick in the 10th minute of the meeting.

The incident wasn’t included in referee Mike Dean’s report, but the FA won’t disregard this incident with signs of racism against the 29-year-old forward, reports The Telegraph.

Tottenham immediately condemned that act via their official statement and promised to consider punishing the fan by the ban on visiting matches.
