Milan vs. Roma
The Serie A match between AC Milan and Roma on Sunday was halted because of racist chanting inside the San Siro.
Play was stopped for about two minutes at the beginning of the second half after chants aimed at Milan's black players from the visiting supporters.

Former Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli and Kevin-Prince Boateng were part of the Milan team.
Ivory Coast striker Arouna Kone scored as FA Cup finalists Wigan edged West Bromwich Albion 3-2 at the weekend to boost hopes of dodging relegation from the English Premier League.

Lacina Traore was another happy Ivorian goal poacher, coming on as a late substitute for Russian outfit Anzhi Makhachkala to equalise and then set up the winner for Cameroonian Samuel Eto'o.
Ivorian Yaya Toure, South African Steven Pienaar and Kenyan Dennis Oliech were among the African scorers in the top European football leagues at the weekend.

Andrea Pirlo and Kevin-Prince Boateng
Juventus have been fined 30,000 euros (£25,685) for their fans' racist abuse of AC Milan players on Sunday.
Juve fans directed racist chants at Milan's black players and also displayed a racist banner during the Turin side's 1-0 victory.
Milan midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng was targeted for jeers and responded by putting his finger to his lips.

Record four-time African Footballer of the Year Samuel Eto'o scored for Russian big spenders Anzhi Makhachkala at the weekend on his return from a knee injury.

Ghanaian midfielder Amidu Salifu is expected to return to his Italian club Fiorentina when his loan deal with rivals Catania expires in June.
The 20-year-old was sent out on loan to the Serie A side at the start of the season for him to gain more playing time.
But his loan stint has turned out to be a nightmare as he has only played in nine matches so far this season with the season set to end next month.
Salifu wanted more playing at Catania which prompted him to ask for the loan move but his stay at Fiorentina looks to have proven more fruitful.
Salomon Kalou, Arouna Kone, Gervinho and Lacina Traore were on target at the weekend as Ivory Coast stars made their mark across European leagues.
