Earphone company say they are "appalled" by Spurs pitch invasions

The company that has been linked to the pitch invasions at White Hart Lane has responded to accusations that they were behind them. The men who ran onto the pitch during Tottenham's match with Partizan Belgrade were wearing shirts with the logo of the firm BassBuds who make earphones. But the company has tweeted that they are "appalled" by the incidents and do not condone them.

The three men who invaded the pitch during tonight's Europa League match at White Hart Lane were all wearing shirts that carried a logo belonging to an earphone company. There were three invasions in the first half which led to the players being taken off by the referee just before half-time. The game was delayed by ten minutes. A Tottenham steward told ITV Sport's Ned Boulting that the invasions appear to have been co-ordinated.
