Alli posted the controversial video on social media where he appeared to focus the camera on a man of Asian descent with the caption, ‘Corona whatttttt, please listen with ­volume.’

The video, which Alli swiftly removed and apologised for, also contained a message that said, ‘This virus gunna have to be quicker than that to catch me og.’

The video has caused outrage within the football community with some fans likening it to the comments that Bernardo Silva was banned for earlier in the season. Silva directed a tweet at his teammate which appeared to liken Mendy to the mascot of a Spanish confectionary brand, Conguitos. 

The tweet was quickly condemned by anti-discrimination groups such as Kick It Out. His manager, Pep Guardiola, came out in his defence but Silva received a ban for his actions. 

Alli took to a Chinese social media platform called Weibo to apologise for his actions. The 23 year old said:

Just wanted to apologise for the video I posted on Snapchat yesterday. It wasn’t funny. I realised that immediately and took it down. I let myself down and the club. I don’t want you guys to have that impression of me. It isn’t something that should be joked about. Sending all my love and thoughts and prayers for everyone in China.

Despite the apology, it is clearly something the FA and anti-discrimination organisations will have to look at and only time will tell as to whether the Euro 2020 hopeful will receive punishment for his actions.

On the pitch, Alli, has been on fire since the appointment of Jose Mourinho and will be looking to propel Spurs into the Champions League places and past RB Leipzig in there Round of Sixteen tie.
