A spokesman for Sunderland AFC said he was investigating the report before making any comment.

Social media posts say the fan was led away by police.

One fan posted on the Ready To Go message board: "I seen everyone move away and there was just one ****** kid stood there ... coppers came n took him out."

Another fan wrote: "What sort of filthy animal even does something like this? He should be locked in a cage."

And a third added: "I don't think he knew what he was doing ... he looked genuinely confused as to why people were having a go at him. Right in front of the security box as well."
