MADRID (AP) — The Spanish government has proposed a one-year stadium ban for the fan who racially insulted a Cádiz player in a Spanish league game this week. The government’s commission against racism, violence and intolerance in sports also proposed a 6,000-euro fine for the fan who made monkey gestures toward Cádiz defender Carlos Akapo in Monday’s league game against Granada. The man reportedly played for Spanish sixth-division club Deportivo Santa Fe, which expelled him. The fan was identified with the help of images from the television broadcast and from other Granada supporters.
