A Juventus fan has been sentenced to one year in prison after throwing a fire cracker onto the pitch during Sunday´s Serie A game between Juve and Udinese.

The 27-year-old was escorted by stewards away from the stands at Turin´s Stadio Olimpico and to the local police station.

No-one was hurt and the fan spent two nights in jail before being taken to court on Tuesday. Although it is unlikely that the fan will spend time in prison because Italian courts frequently suspend sentences for first-time offenders, he will be banned from all football stadia for the next three years.
