The police statement said he was "arrested on suspicion of a racially aggravated Section 4A Public Order Act offence and currently remains in custody at the west London police station.

The arrest comes after the Blues filed a complaint to the Football Association over referee Mark Clattenburg allegedly airing a raical slur at midfielder John Obi Mikel at the weekend.
