"After a thorough and immediate investigation following the abhorrent racist abuse aimed at Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah on Monday night, West Ham United can confirm that it has handed evidence to the Metropolitan Police," read the brief missive.

"The club is unequivocal in its stance such abuse will not be tolerated. There is no place or excuse for this kind of behaviour."

West Ham were forced to act after Kick It Out were contacted by the individual who recorded the incident (which may be seen here).

London-based Liverpool supporter Sadat Yazdani contacted the organisation following the incident, which he recorded from an area designated for home supporters only.
