West Ham Fan fined & banned for racially abusing Mo Salah

A West Ham United fan has been banned from football games for three years after admitting to racially abusing Liverpool’s Mohammed Salah.
In February 2019 during a 1-1 draw at the London Stadium, Salah was filmed on a phone as he was taking a corner.

Expletives directed at Salah, including about his Muslim religion, could be heard on the footage.

“At Thames Magistrates’ Court Bradley Thumwood, 48, admitted a racially-aggravated public order offense,” BBC reported.

The court fined £400 and ordered to pay a victim surcharge and court costs of £125.

“Speaking after the conviction the Met’s Andy Sheldon said the force was grateful for the support of West Ham “for their commitment to eradicating this type of behaviour.

He added: “We do not, and will not tolerate hate crime of any kind at football matches and will take action against those who are found to have committed these kinds of crimes during games.

“We ask anyone who sees or hears this type of behaviour to speak to stewards or police,” Thumwood noted.
