TV commentator abused at Sandy Park

Exeter Chiefs are looking through CCTV footage to track down a fan who subjected TV commentator Ugo Monye to racist abuse following Sunday's Premiership match at Sandy Park.

The club has launched an investigation into the allegations, which Mr Monye posted on social media after working at the game against Gloucester. 

He says he faced "disgraceful abuse" and no-one intervened as he left the stadium.

In a statement, Exeter Rugby Club said: "This behaviour will not be tolerated at our rugby club, and we condemn it in the strongest possible terms.

Our team will begin to review CCTV footage from the stadium immediately in an attempt to identify the individual in question and we would like to extend our sincerest apologies to Ugo Monye, a member of the rugby community that is highly respected by everyone at our club.

If anyone has any information regarding this incident we would ask you to get in touch with the Chiefs as soon as you can."
