Tottenham's Harry Kane: Richarlison's "unacceptable" racist incident

Richarlison was involved in a racist incident involving teammate Richarlison during Brazil's 5-1 friendly victory over Tunisia in Paris on Tuesday. A banana was thrown by the crowd at Brazilian players celebrating a Richarlison goal, prompting FIFA to announce the next day that they will investigate the incident. Richarlison took to social media after the game to say things would continue unless tough penalties were imposed by football authorities like FIFA, and Kane echoed his teammate's view in an interview. "It was very disappointing to see," said Kane. "I have not seen [Richarlison] and had the chance to talk about racism that he suffered against Tunisia. I think FIFA said they will examine and find out what has happened, but it is usually not acceptable. "I think we are doing everything we can as players to eliminate [racism] as much as possible. I hope FIFA can be strong and find out who did it and make sure the right consequences will be taken." Kane added he was happy to play alongside Richarlison at Spurs following his summer move from Everton. Tottenham, who face Arsenal on Saturday, are a point behind the Premier League leaders and Richarlison also impressed in the Champions League, scoring twice in the win over Marseille. "[Richarlison] is a great guy," Kane said. "I get on very well with him. He works very hard and is really professional. Obviously, he was great in his first season with us, so I'm really happy to have him in our team."
