FOUR separate incidents of actual or alleged racism towards Norwich defender Sebastien Bassong have been reported to the police, the club have confirmed.

The allegations relate to Norwich’s away matches against Everton on 24 November and the 4-3 win at Swansea on Saturday. A Swansea supporter was released on bail yesterday after being arrested for allegedly making racist gestures towards Bassong as he celebrated a goal with his team-mates. Norwich have confirmed the other three cases involved racist messages being sent to the defender on Twitter after both the Swansea match and the 1-1 draw at Everton.

The club thanked both Swansea and the police for their treatment of the situation and confirmed racist tweets aimed at Bassong have also now been reported.
