Tottenham Hotspur has given life bans to two supporters after a cup filled with urine was thrown at West Ham United fans during a League Cup match at Wembley.

Social media footage showed one person passing urine into a plastic glass before the other threw it towards the travelling supporters at the English national stadium last week. Tottenham investigated the incident and, after identifying the individuals concerned, has now issued lifetime bans to both men.

“This kind of behaviour is not acceptable and we shall be issuing lifetime bans to both individuals in the video,” a Tottenham spokesman said on Monday.

Mauricio Pochettino's side led 2-0 in Wednesday's tie before West Ham hit back to beat its London rival 3-2 and book a place in the quarterfinals.
