UEFA fine Inter Milan £37,862 for the "improper conduct" of their supporters during a Europa League tie against Tottenham Hotspur.

Inter Milan have been fined £37,862 by UEFA following alleged racial abuse from their supporters during a Europa League clash against Tottenham Hotspur.

During the match on March 14, which ended 4-4 on aggregate, reports have claimed that Spurs striker Emmanuel Adebayor was the subject of racial chants.

The European governing body launched an investigation and have hit the Serie A outfit with a fine, stating that they can appeal the decision once they receive the written reasons.

While racism is thought to have been the issue, UEFA have described the incident as "improper conduct".
