Tottenham and England football star, Dele Alli has been charged with misconduct by the Football Association following an investigation into his social media post where he made an insensitive joke about coronavirus outbreak as he mocked an Asian man.

Earlier this month, the 23-year-old midfielder posted a video on Snapchat, where he appeared to film a man of Asian descent, along with the caption Corona whatttttt, please listen with ­volume.’

In the video, Alli was seen wearing a mask with a look of concern on his face.
