A Chelsea fan has been arrested for allegedly racially abusing Son Heung-Min during Sunday’s fiery London derby at Tottenham, according to Daily Mail.

The Tottenham Hotspur attacker was not aware of the incident, but it was reported to authorities by Chelsea fans in the stands who heard the alleged abuse.

Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger was subjected to monkey chants by Tottenham Hotspur fans during the game.

Rudiger tweeted after the game that it’s a shame racism still exists in 2019.

“It is really sad to see racism again at a football match, but I think it’s very important to talk about it in public,” Rudiger said.

“If not, it will be forgotten again in a couple of days (as always). I don’t want to involve Tottenham as an entire club into this situation as I know that just a couple of idiots were the offenders.

“I got a lot of supportive messages on social media from Spurs fans as well in the last hours – thank you a lot for this.

“I really hope that the offenders will be found and punished soon, and in such a modern football ground like the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with dozens of TV and security cameras, it must be possible to find and subsequently punish them.

“If not, then there must have been witnesses in the stadium who saw and heard the incident. It’s just such a shame that racism still exists in 2019. When will this nonsense stop?”
