The head of football's world governing body FIFA, Sepp Blatter, on Monday denounced racist chanting that held up a weekend game between AC Milan and Roma.
"Appalled to read about racist abuse in Serie A last night, but we're committed to action, not just words," Blatter wrote on his Twitter account @SeppBlatter.
Play was held up for three minutes early in the second half of the game at the San Siro in Milan as Roma fans were warned to stop making racist chants.
The target of the abuse was believed to be Milan striker Mario Balotelli.
