The footballer Mario Balotelli is at the centre of a racism row, just days after joining the Italian club, AC Milan.

A video has emerged showing the club's vice-president Paolo Berlusconi, the brother of the former Prime Minister and AC Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi, making a racist remark about the player at an event on Sunday.

It comes just a few weeks after players from the club walked off the pitch and abandoned a match after fans abused another one of its black players, Kevin-Prince Boateng, during a friendly game.

The BBC's Alan Johnston reports.
