LONDON (AP) - Chelsea has suspended three people from its Stamford Bridge stadium following an investigation into an incident in which a black man was blocked from boarding a Paris metro train by a group of Chelsea fans.

The London club says Thursday that “if it is deemed there is sufficient evidence of their involvement in the incident, the club will issue banning orders for life.”

The Premier League leader says it has received “substantial information” following an appeal for witnesses of Tuesday’s incident, which happened before the team’s Champions League match against Paris Saint-Germain, which ended 1-1.

Rowdy fans chanted racist songs as they prevented the man from getting on the metro on two occasions.
