Inter fans aim racist abuse at Spurs players including Adebayor... who gets his revenge by dumping them out of Europe

Tottenham players were subjected to racist chants by Inter Milan supporters on Thursday night.
Inter fans were also seen waving an inflatable banana, as they did to AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli during the recent Milan derby.
Spurs lost 4-1 after extra-time on the night but progressed to the Europa League quarter-finals on away goals after the tie finished 4-4 on aggregate.
Hows that? Emmanuel Adebayor (centre) shrugged off the abuse and scored in extra time

However, much of the aftermath to the thrilling encounter will surround what action governing body UEFA will take against Inter after racism seemingly reared its ugly head tonight.
Monkey chants appeared to be aimed at several Tottenham players, notably goalscorer Emmanuel Adebayor. His away goal was enough for Spurs progress despite their defeat. 
It is not the first occasion Spurs have had problems against Italian sides this season.
Lazio were fined for racist chanting in their Group J tie at White Hart Lane in September and were reprimanded again for racist behaviour in November's return game.
