A West Ham United supporter has been banned from football games for three years after admitting to racially abusing Liverpool star Mohamed Salah at a match in January.

At the Thames Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday Bradley Thumwood, 48, admitted a racially-aggravated public order offense.

Along with the three-year ban from attending any kind of football, he has also been fined £400 and also ordered to pay a victim surcharge and costs amounting to £125.

Thumwood has been banned from football for three years and fined £400, the Metropolitan Police said in a statement.

West Ham United vowed to take a ‘zero-tolerance approach’ to any future incidents of a similar nature, a club spokesperson said.
