Sky Sports News conducted a three-month investigation into racism in football

Metropolitan Police confirmed that a 53-year-old from Enfield was arrested for a racially aggravated public order offence and remains in police custody.

The development comes the day after Sky Sports News broadcast a Special Report on racism in football that appeared to show striker El Hadji Diouf being abused at The Den during a game in November.

Both the Metropolitan Police and the Football Association requested a copy of Monday's programme to conduct their own investigations.

Millwall released a statement after the broadcast to say they were "appalled" by the footage.

The Championship club has promised to ban any individuals for life if they are found guilty.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
