Tottenham Hotspur took on Arsenal in the North London derby this weekend, unfortunately losing the tie 4-2.

However, no matter what side you’re on, you have to appreciate the beauty of such a passionate occasion.

The North London derby is something special, and never fails to live up to the hype.

Fans were treated to an end-to-end attacking game of football in which 22 players were fully committed to die for their shirts.

That’s what football is all about, but unfortunately it isn’t what the headlines are all about.

After Aubameyang tucked away an early penalty for the Gunners, some embarrassment of a Spurs fan threw a banana onto the pitch.

This kind of racism is just unacceptable, especially in the modern game, and Tottenham have come out and said the ‘fan’ will be banned for life.

Aubameyang has come out on social media to have his say on the matter.

He posted a picture of the incident with the caption ‘#whysmandoingthis?’ next to a banana emoji.

Disgusting action that eclipsed a great derby.
