Police have launched an investigation into allegations that West Brom striker Romelu Lukaku was racially abused at Sunderland on Saturday.

Northumbria Police have confirmed they are looking into a complaint after a Black Cats supporter was pictured apparently making a monkey gesture towards the Belgium international after he converted a penalty in his side's 4-2 victory at the Stadium of Light.

A spokesman said: "Police are carrying out enquiries after a report of racist abuse was received at the Sunderland v West Brom match on Saturday."
