He played football at amateur level and was most recently on the books with French fifth-tier side Toulouse Rodeo.

The incident comes just hours after Serge had played for Spurs in their 2-1 win over Arsenal in the north London derby at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Aurier played the full 90 minutes as Jose Mourinho's side came from a goal down to beat their fiercest rivals thanks to a late header by Toby Alderweireld.

The Ivorian, a 62-cap international, moved to Tottenham in 2017 from PSG and has gone on to make 79 appearances for the club, scoring six goals.

He helped Spurs to the final of the Champions League last season where they were beaten by Liverpool in Madrid.
