The 21-year-old from Surrey went to £30,000 a year public school Millfield, and works for the Business and Commercial Finance Club in Mayfair, Central London.

It is unknown whether Parsons was among those seen involved in the racist chanting and abuse of a black commuter.

Another fan named Mitchell McCoy has admitted that he was on the carriage, but denies that the supporters were being racist. He said, “He was not turned away for being black — there was simply not enough space. He was also wearing a PSG scarf. There were 40 or 50 Chelsea fans in the carriage, and just a few French people.”

It is likely the pair will now help police to find those responsible for the reprehensible incident. If prosecuted the perpetrators could be given three year terms in jail, and fined up to £30,000.
