Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli has been charged by the Football Association over a post on social media about coronavirus. Alli, 23, put a video on Snapchat in which he joked about the outbreak and appeared to mock an Asian man. He later deleted the post and released a new video on Chinese social media platform Weibo to apologise, saying: “I let myself down and the club.”

He has been charged with misconduct for an aggravated breach of FA Rule E3. In a statement English football’s governing body said: “It is alleged that his post breaches FA Rule E3(1) as it was insulting and/or improper and/or brought the game into disrepute. “It is further alleged that the post constitutes an aggravated breach, which is defined in FA Rule E3(2), as it included a reference, whether express or implied, to race and/or colour and/or ethnic origin and/or nationality.” He has until Thursday, 5 March 2020 to provide a response.
