    Inter Milan striker Mario Balotelli has been fined 7,000 euros (C$10,370) by the Italian league for mocking fans after racial taunts.

    Balotelli, the son of Ghanian immigrants, ironically applauded Chievo Verona supporters when he was substituted during Wednesday's game.

    Balotelli scored the lone goal in Inter's 1-0 victory. In a post-match TV interview, Balotelli said that every time he comes to Verona "the fans are more and more sickening."

    Likewise, Inter was fined 15,000 euros (C$22,230) for its fans' racial abuse toward a Chievo player and exploding fireworks.

    Chievo was not fined.
