Euro 2016: France Expels Russia Far-right Fan Chief Shprygin

The far-right leader of the Russian footballer supporters' association is being thrown out of France following violence at the England-Russia Euro 2016 match in Marseille. Alexander Shprygin is among 20 Russian fans being deported. They were detained on Tuesday while travelling from Marseille to Lille to watch Russia face Slovakia.

 

The arrests angered Moscow, who summoned the French ambassador in protest. Mr Shprygin's All-Russia Supporters Union is backed by the Kremlin. He is reported to hold far-right views and has been photographed giving a Nazi salute. Russia and England fans clashed before and after the two teams played on Saturday.
