FA investigate claims of racist chants at Son Heung-min

The seven-second video appears to have been recorded after the match, with a man wearing a flat-cap assaulting two Tottenham supporters singing an anti-Millwall song.

One lashed out unprovoked with a powerful blow that knocked one of the men to the ground. That's causing a fair amount of panic amongst Tottenham fans on social media, who are now fretting about whether Kane might actually miss the rest of the season.

The video has already been viewed thousands of times and the Metropolitan Police has confirmed that they are aware of the footage, with several members of the public reporting the video to them.

Much of the talk in the build-up to the contest surrounded security and there was a heavy police presence outside White Hart Lane before kick-off.

The Football Association is understood to be investigating allegations of racism following chants directed at Tottenham's Son Heung-min during the FA Cup quarterfinal against Millwall on Monday morning (NZT).

The South Korea worldwide bagged a hat-trick as Spurs cruised to a 6-0 victory over the Lions at White Hart Lane on Sunday, putting them in the semi-finals of the competition.

What seems most obvious at this moment is that if all goes well, " Deadpool 2 " won't be the last time Beetz will play Domino. "Atalanta" star Zazie Beetz has been cast to play Neena Thurman, aka Domino , in "Deadpool 2", TheWrap has learned.

Millwall fans sang "DVD" and "He's selling three for a fiver" at Son throughout yesterday's match - in an ugly form of racial stereotyping against the Korean.

The 23-year-old's absence was not immediately felt as Tottenham comfortably reached their first FA Cup semi-final since 2012 courtesy of a Son Heung-min hat-trick and strikes from Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli and Vincent Janssen.

Millwall boss Neil Harris said fans guilty of such behaviour should be dealt with "harshly" and that his club was not prepared to tolerate such antics.

"I didn't hear anything, but the club, we won't condone that", Harris said. We just want people to enjoy the game.

"Of course it's a shame, for both of us - Mauricio wants to be talking about his team's quality".

Kane has scored 24 goals in all competitions this season and Spurs will be desperate to get their main source of goals back on the pitch as soon as possible as we enter the business end of the season. "It's wrong in society and it's wrong in football".
