Norwich City have said they are “very concerned” by allegations that boxer Anthony Ogogo was racially abused by a fellow fan at the end of Tuesday night’s game at Arsenal.

The Canaries lost the Carabao Cup tie 2-1 in extra-time and as Mr Ogogo applauded the players off the pitch after their efforts at the Emirates Stadium, his night was marred by the abuse he suffered.

In a statement, a club spokesman said: “Norwich City Football Club is very concerned by reports from Anthony Ogogo that he suffered racial abuse from a supporter in the Norwich section during our game against Arsenal at the Emirates last night.

“As a club we have a zero tolerance policy on racism and all other forms of discrimination and we have contacted Anthony this morning asking him to supply us with more details so we can thoroughly investigate this matter.

“As always, any supporter found to be guilty of discriminatory abuse will be banned indefinitely by Norwich City and face possible criminal investigation.”
