Chelsea Football Club has launched an investigation after a supporter was photographed making an apparent racist gesture towards a Manchester United player.
The picture, published in more than one national newspaper, seems to show a fan making a 'monkey' gesture towards a United player during last night's Capital One Cup clash between the two clubs at Stamford Bridge.
Police are also aware of the photograph but have not yet received a formal allegation on which to open a criminal investigation.
