LONDON (Reuters) - Tottenham Hotspur and England midfielder Dele Alli has been charged with misconduct by the Football Association after mocking the coronavirus outbreak.
Alli posted a video on social media of himself at an airport wearing a mask and apparently mocking a man of Asian appearance.
He later apologised for the prank.
Alli, 23, has been charged with breaching FA Rule E3 (1) as the post was deemed ‘insulting and/or improper and/or brought the game into disrepute’.
He has until March 5 to submit his response.
