"Racist" U.K. soccer fans caught on video in Paris

PARIS -- A group of Chelsea fans have been filmed preventing a black man from boarding a subway train in France before the team's Champions League game at Paris Saint-Germain.

After twice pushing the man away, the group - some of whom chanted "Chelsea, Chelsea, Chelsea" moments before Tuesday's incident - then sing "we're racist, we're racist, and that's the way we like it."

Another passenger, a black woman, then steps off the train.

In the video, obtained by The Guardian, a black man tries to board at Richelieu Drouout metro station in Paris and is pushed away. He then pushes back and says in French "Can I get on or what?" before again being shoved away.

Chelsea says "such behavior is abhorrent and has no place in football or society."
