A Tottenham Hotspur fan has been arrested after throwing banana skin at Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in Sunday's north London derby.

The Gunners secured a 4-2 comeback win, with the 29-year-old bagging a brace in the explosive fixture at the Emirates.

Celebrating the first of the pair at the away end of the stadium, the former Borussia Dortmund striker had a banana skin hurled at him; an act believed to be racist.

However, Metropolitan Police confirmed afterwards that they were seven arrests made during the heated encounter, with Aubameyang's offender included.

A double against the visitors saw the Gabon international become the first player to score with 10 consecutive shots on target in the Premier League since October 2007. Also, he sits atop the Premier League goalscoring chart with 10 goals.
