Scotland Yard had released images of men they were looking to question in relation to the incident. These men were believed to be among a group of Chelsea supporters who allegedly pushed a black man off a train repeatedly and sang a racist song in the French capital, following the Blues’ Champions League game against PSG.
A spokesman from the Metropolitan Police said that three men had now been identified and they were liaising with French authorities and no-one had yet been arrested according to the Metro.
