Swansea have confirmed one of their supporters has been arrested for allegedly making a racist gesture towards Norwich defender Sebastien Bassong during their 4-3 Barclays Premier League defeat at the Liberty Stadium.

The incident took place after Robert Snodgrass had scored Norwich's fourth goal from a free-kick in the 77th minute. Bassong, who had scored earlier in the game, went to celebrate with his team-mates but quickly motioned to referee Howard Webb that he believed he had been the victim of a racist gesture.

Webb then reported the incident to the fourth official, and an arrest of a male supporter has been made. A Swansea spokesman said: "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."
