Thomas Flint, 23, from Enfield, will appear at Highbury Corner Magistrates Court on 12 April to answer a charge of throwing a missile on to the playing area, and using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour or disorderly behaviour likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress.

Flint, who is understood to be an Arsenal fan, has been released on bail.

During the Premier League match at White Hart Lane, which Tottenham won 2-1, Gareth Bale had a banana thrown at him by Arsenal supporters.

Arsenal said on the club's official website that if the individual charged was found guilty, he would also receive a stadium ban from Arsenal Football Club.
