Police are working to identify a spectator who is alleged to have thrown a banana on to the pitch during Manchester City's friendly against Limerick.

Gardai and officials from Limerick FC and Thomond Park, which staged Sunday night's game, have moved swiftly after City defender Gael Clichy revealed that an object had been hurled on to the playing surface during his side's 4-0 victory.

A statement released on behalf of Limerick and Thomond Park Stadium on Monday evening said: "Limerick FC officials met with Thomond Park officials and local Gardai this afternoon to continue attempts to identify a person that threw an offensive object on to the playing field during the friendly game on Sunday night, August 5."
