Four Chelsea fans found guilty of racist violence on Paris train
Four Chelsea fans have been found guilty of racist violence in Paris, almost two years after they allegedly blocked a black man from boarding a Paris metro train.
The Chelsea supporters were given suspended prison sentences ranging from six months to a year. They must also pay €10,000 (£8,500) in damages to the victim.
The incident happened in February 2015 before a Champions League game against Paris Saint-Germain.
Video showed Souleymane Sylla being pushed off the train by Chelsea supporters, who were singing: "We're racist, we're racist, and that's the way we like it."
Mr Sylla said: "That's things we used to see in films actually. I used to hear the story of Rosa Parks," referring to the American civil rights pioneer arrested in 1955 for refusing to give her bus seat to a white passenger.
"I didn't believe it would happen to me", he told FranceInfo radio.
Two French anti-racist associations, SOS Racisme and LICRA, backed Mr Sylla's legal action.
