Police have arrested a Sunderland fan over alleged racist gestures directed at West Bromwich Albion striker, Romelu Lukaka on Saturday, reports the Sunderland Echo.
Lukaka was celebrating scoring his side's third goal in a 4-2 win when the man was photographed appearing to make a monkey gesture.
West Brom head coach, Steve Clarke, said there is "no place in the game or any walk of life" for racism, reports the Telegraph.
Sunderland FC have said they operate a zero tolerance policy towards racism
The incident came on the same weekend that some West Ham United fans chanted anti-Semitic abuse at Tottenham supporters.
Some made Nazi salutes and hissing noises - mimicking the gassing of Jews in the Holocaust - as well as singing Adolf Hitler chants.
And last month a Chelsea fan Gavin Kirkham was arrested after he allegedly made a monkey gesture during the Blues' League Cup win against Manchester United.
