Scotland fans in clear over Neymar
Wednesday 30 March 2011
Arsenal have confirmed a German tourist has admitted to throwing a banana at Brazil's goalscorer Neymar during his side's 2-0 win over Scotland at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.
The striker was jeered throughout the match and afterwards complained of being a victim of racist abuse from the Tartan Army, but the revelation from the German teenager has proved this not to be the case. The Metropolitan Police were satisfied there was no racist intent and that no action will be taken against the fan.
