Di Canio under pressure to explain fascism as The Sun publishes new picture

The Sun has published a photo of new Sunderland manager Paolo Di Canio allegedly at the funeral of an Italian fascist.

The Italian football star reportedly attended the service for extremest Paolo Signorelli in Rome three years ago.

Signorelli had spent eight years in prison after being linked to a terrorist bomb attack which killed 85 people in 1980.

Yesterday, Di Canio refused to answer ITV News' question on whether he is a fascist and blasted the controversy surrounding his appointment as "ridiculous and pathetic".
