Daily Mail – ‘Fan who insulted stewards with his “Nazi” salute’

Daily Mail - Fan who insulted stewards


We obtained photographs taken during an Olympics basketball clash between Lithuania and Argentina in which a Lithuanian fan appeared to make an offensive gesture towards stewards. The photographs were exclusively published by the Daily Mail, before being published in a number of national newspapers the following day. In response to the photographs, the Metropolitan Police launched an undercover operation during the next Lithuania match against Nigeria. A Lithuanian fan was arrested, and later fined £2,500 for ‘racially aggravated behaviour’ for making Nazi gestures and monkey chants.
