Following Arsenal’s 3-1 victory against Manchester United on Sunday, video footage appeared to show Sky Sports analysts Roy Keane and Micah Richards getting into a physical fight with a person. As a result, a 42-year-old man has been detained as part of an investigation into the alleged assault.
Keane, a 52-year-old former United midfielder, was reportedly attacked.
The Metropolitan police said in a statement: “On Monday, 4 September, a 42-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assault (ABH). The man has been taken into police custody. Enquiries are ongoing.
Arsenal said in a statement: “We are aware of an incident that took place during our match against Manchester United on Sunday.”
“The Metropolitan Police is conducting an investigation into the matter and we are fully co-operating with their enquiries.”
On Sunday, Arsenal overcame a 1-0 deficit to defeat United 3-1 thanks to two stoppage-time goals from Declan Rice and Gabriel Jesus.
