Player's racism claims

Fresh claims of racism are once more casting a shadow over international football. Danny Rose, the Doncaster born England Under-21 footballer, says he wants Serbia banned from international competition after he was racially abused during a match last night.

The 22 year-old claims he was hit by stones thrown from the crowd, who also chanted monkey noises at him. He also says he was slapped by some of the Serbian players after the game as violence broke out on the pitch.

The English FA have submitted a complaint to Uefa, but their Serbian counterparts say the claims are "malevolent", and that it was Rose who was to blame. Frazer Maude reports.

PM joins condemnation of racist chants

The Prime Minister has now joined the condemnation of Serbian fans and players who allegedly racially abused Doncaster born footballer Danny Rose during an under 21 international last night.

22 year-old Rose, a former Leeds United trainee, reacted to racist chants from Serbian fans by kicking the ball into the crowd just after England had won their match in Krusevac last night.

David Cameron has said he was appalled by the scenes on the pitch, and, along with his sports minister, has called on UEFA to investigate.
