In a bid to end racism in football, a Tottenham supporter has been arrested for throwing a banana skin at Arsenal and Gabonese striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after he scored during north London derby on Sunday.

The Metropolitan Police confirmed there were seven arrests made and one arrested was a Tottenham fan who hurled banana skin onto the pitch as Aubameyang celebrated scoring an early penalty in front of the Tottenham fans.
The authorities said as Arsenal players mobbed around their star striker who scored the first goal in the match, a banana was seen to be thrown from the away section, landing close by where the Arsenal team celebrated the goal.
The moment the piece of fruit was seen hurling through the air was captured by photographers at the stadium.
There were also six arrests for public order offences, and two are believed to be Arsenal supporters who lit smoke canisters during the match, according to Mail Online Sport.
Tottenham are likely to face a disciplinary action for 'fan racism' after the incident.
