SPORT: Spurs midfielder Dele Alli has been suspended for one match by the Football Association over a post on social media about coronavirus.

Alli, 24, put a video on Snapchat in February in which he joked about the outbreak and appeared to mock an Asian man.

The England international has also been fined £50,000 and ordered to undertake an education course.

He will miss Tottenham’s match at home to Manchester United on 19 June.

Alli said: “In response to the FA decision, I would like to apologise again for any offence caused by my behaviour.

More than 41,000 people have died with coronavirus in the UK, and more than 416,000 worldwide.
