    Follow us on Social Media

    Police are investigating an image that appears to show a Sunderland fan directing a monkey gesture towards West Brom striker Romelu Lukaku.

    The incident occurred after the on-loan Chelsea player scored in his team's 4-2 win at the Stadium of Light on Saturday.

    Northumbria Police have confirmed they are looking into the gesture, with Sunderland fully co-operating.

    A club spokeswoman said: "Sunderland operates a policy of zero tolerance towards racism and anti-social behaviour of any kind and naturally we will co-operate with the police fully investigating any such incidents."

    Ged Grebby, chief executive of anti-racism charity Show Racism the Red Card, has welcomed the investigation.

    He stated: "We welcome the news that Sunderland AFC and Northumbria Police have announced they will investigate this."
