The Metropolitan Police has launched an investigation into an alleged assault involving Manchester United legend Roy Keane at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

The incident came to public attention through footage circulating on social media, depicting the aftermath of the altercation. Keane, who was at the stadium as part of Sky Sports’ punditry team for Manchester United’s 3-1 loss to Arsenal, appeared visibly displeased as former Manchester City player Micah Richards, also part of the Sky Sports team, was seen restraining an individual.

As of now, no arrests have been made in connection with the incident, but police inquiries are actively ongoing. Both Micah Richards and Roy Keane have provided statements to the police regarding the matter.

A statement issued by the Metropolitan Police confirmed the investigation, stating, “Police are investigating following an assault that is alleged to have occurred at the Emirates Stadium during an Arsenal vs. Manchester United match on Sunday, 3 September. There have been no arrests. Enquiries are ongoing. Any witnesses or those with information are asked to call 101 ref CAD 6961/3 Sept.”

Sky Sports, for whom both Richards and Keane were working, also acknowledged the incident. In a statement to the Daily Mail, Sky said, “We understand the police are investigating an alleged assault by a member of the public immediately preceding the footage circulating on social media. In the footage seen, Micah Richards was acting to defuse a situation.”

The altercation reportedly occurred before Richards and Keane headed down to pitch-side to continue their punditry duties for Sky Sports after the match. The match itself had a dramatic ending, with Arsenal scoring two goals in stoppage time to secure a 3-1 victory. This result leaves Manchester United with just six points heading into the international break, having narrowly beaten Wolves and Nottingham Forest but suffering a loss to Tottenham in between.

The investigation into this alleged assault at the Emirates Stadium is ongoing, and further details may emerge as the police continue their inquiries.
