Swansea midfielder Shelvey facing action over 'swimming' gesture

Swansea City midfielder Jonjo Shelvey could be in hot water after their defeat at Cardiff City.

Swansea City midfielder Jonjo Shelvey could be in hot water after their defeat at Cardiff City.

Shelvey could face action from the football authorities after television footage emerged apparently showing him attempting to incite Cardiff fans following Sunday's south Wales derby.

At the full-time whistle the Swansea players went to go and applaud the travelling support, but, on his way to that end of the ground, Shelvey appears to make a gesture known as 'Swim away' towards the Cardiff fans.

The gesture is believed to reference an incident which took place in 1988 where Cardiff fans allegedly retreated into the sea after the two sets of supporters clashed.
