"Uefa has opened disciplinary proceedings against Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets, who is alleged to have violated... the Uefa disciplinary regulations by directing racist abuse towards a Real Madrid player," Uefa said.

"The proceedings have been launched on the basis of evidence provided by Real Madrid."
