Arsenal supporter sentenced for throwing banana at Tottenham derby

An Arsenal supporter has admitted throwing a banana at Tottenham star Gareth Bale during the north London derby last month, reports BBC News. Thomas Flint, 23, a carpenter from Enfield, threw the missile during the game at White Hart Lane on 3 March.

Highbury Corner Magistrates' Court heard Flint also admit to using threatening or abusive words or behaviour likely to cause alarm.

Arsenal had said anyone found guilty over the incident will receive a ban.

Flint was sentenced to a three-year football banning order, fined £250 and ordered to pay costs of £85.
