A man has been fined and banned from Swansea City football games after performing a Nazi salute to Spurs supporters.
Leighton Johnson from Swansea was captured making a Nazi salute towards Tottenham Hotspur supporters at Liberty Stadium in April 2017.
Mr Johnson denied causing racially aggravated alarm or distress and claimed that he was merely waving to a family member about going for a cigarette.
Judge Thomas said: “Your behaviour was that of a racist oaf and you made a clown of yourself giving evidence during your trial. You claim you were waving to invite someone to go for a cigarette and that you didn’t know about the club’s connection to Jewish fans. This to me is laughable.”
In September 2018, Mr Johnson was sentenced by Swansea Crown Court to 150 hours of unpaid work and a twelve-month community order, was ordered to pay £1,085 in costs and was banned from Swansea City home matches for three years.
