‘We're racist and that's the way we like it' Chelsea fans shame the Brits in Paris

It was Chelsea's Champions League first leg with Paris St Germain in France last night, but the impression of the club is less than a positive one due to the fans actions away from the pitch.

The club find themselves in news this morning for altogether more negative reasons after what appeared to be a group of their fans singing racist songs and stopping a black man getting onto a train in the Paris metro.

It was filmed after Chelsea drew 1:1 with the French team.

Footage shows a black man trying to get onto a train full of Chelsea fans, when they push him back onto the platform multiple times and chanting “We're racist and that's the way we like it”.

The football fans also made gestures at the man and shouted “where were you in World War Two?”

The club has promised to take action to rectify the situation. A spokesperson from the club said: "We will support any criminal action against those involved and should evidence point to the involvement of Chelsea season ticket holders or members, the club will take the strongest possible action against them including banning orders."

Amar Singh Digital Sports Editor of the Evening Standard and fellow sports journalist and Chelsea fan Tom Sheen joined Headline London to discuss this event.
