Striker Troy Deeney, who broke Wolves hearts with a last-gasp equaliser from the penalty spot, said he suffered racist abuse after posting a series of pictures on his Instagram account of his celebrations on the pitch and afterwards with family and friends.

The Metropolitan Police said five arrests were made at the game but did not confirm whether the man filmed brawling was among them.

In the footage, the man, who is wearing a Wolves shirt, appears to approach Watford fans at random, first shoving one in the throat before throwing a punch at the other.

After getting back to his feet, he continues to try to fight the rival fans before being dragged away from the crowd.

His actions were condemned by fans of various clubs, including Wolves.
