A man has been arrested following claims of racist abuse aimed at Sebastien Bassong during Norwich City's 4-3 win at Swansea City on Saturday.

The incident is said to have happened soon after Norwich scored their fourth goal in the 77th minute at the Liberty Stadium.

Bassong quickly reported the incident to referee Howard Webb and the man was dealt with by police.

"There was an incident after Norwich's fourth goal. Sebastien Bassong made the referee aware there was a racist gesture towards him from a Swansea City fan," said a Swansea spokesperson.

"Within 10 minutes of the report, the stewards had got hold of the TV footage, replayed it, identified the alleged person in question and within that period, he was arrested for a racially-aggravated public order offence."

Bassong was on the scoresheet at the Liberty Stadium as Norwich extended their unbeaten run to nine matches.
