An Ulster Rugby spectator has been handed a lifetime ban by the club over abuse directed at Ireland international Simon Zebo.

It happened during a European fixture against Rassing 92 at the Kingspan Stadium.

In a statement, Ulster thanked supporters who came forward with information on the incident.

Following the match, Zebo sent a tweet which was widely interpreted as saying the abuse was racist.

The former Munster and Ireland player tweeted after the Heineken Champions Cup game on 12 January: "I hope my ears deceived me with some comments directed my way from the crowd. #NotOn Django wins in the end."

'Django' would appear to be a reference to the 2012 Quentin Tarantino movie about an African-American slave. 

Ulster said that they have written to Zebo and Racing 92 to apologise.
