The alleged incident comes after a number of Chelsea fans are said to have racially abused a black man on a Paris metro train.

British Transport Police said the men chanted as they walked through the station on Wednesday evening.

“The racist chanting was reported by a member of the public who was disgusted by the behaviour of the men who had travelled on the 18.40 service from Paris Gard du Nord," Superintendent Gill Murray said.

"The men shouted as they walked through the station having alighted from the train a short time earlier.

“If you travelled on the train from Paris or were at the station and have information which can assist our investigation I would urge you to get in touch as a matter of urgency.”

Five Chelsea fans have been banned from Stamford Bridge over the incident already after a black man was pushed off a Paris train in an apparently racially-motivated incident involving Chelsea supporters on Tuesday.

The Metropolitan Police said in a statement: "The three men are thought to be Chelsea Football Club fans who were travelling to the match against Paris Saint-Germain, at Parc des Princes."

Anyone who believes they may know the men are asked to contact the MPS on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously 0800 555 111.

The man, identified only as 33-year-old Souleymane, said he not yet received any contact via his lawyer from the Premier League club after he was left "humiliated" on Tuesday evening.

He told BBC Radio 5 Live Drive:

For me, it's a humiliation. I was humiliated in my country. I was humiliated in front of my family, humiliated in front of my mother and father.

Of course it's Chelsea's responsibility. It's their supporters.

They (the fans) didn't say Paris, they said Chelsea. Chelsea should call my lawyer. And they haven't done that yet. It's their supporters. The director general of PSG has called my lawyer but Chelsea haven't contacted my lawyer.

– Souleymane

Chelsea have said they are "appalled" and have apologised to the victim, while manager Jose Mourinho said he was "ashamed" of the fans involved. The club have suspended three people from its Stamford Bridge ground and are helping police in the UK and Paris.
