  • Police officer left dead after Athletic and Spartak Moscow fans clash in Bilbao

Josu Zubiaga, vice-chairman of security for the Basque government told Spanish radio station Cadena Ser that the policeman, named as Inocencio Alonso, 51, had not died as a result of violent contact.

A police officer has died in Spain after violent clashes erupted between rival fans before Athletic Bilbao's home Europa League match against Spartak Moscow at San Mames. At least five people have been arrested by the police after the incident.

MADRID (AP) - Authorities say the riot police officer who died of cardiac arrest during crowd trouble before a Europa League match in Spain collapsed on his own and not in a direct confrontation with fans. It stressed, however, that not all fans arriving from Russian Federation were members of such "ultra" groups.

Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy has condemned Thursday's violence.

"Everything was very confusing and the police did not distinguish Athletic Bilbao's fans from the Spartak because they all wear the same colors".

Meanwhile, Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos tweeted: "Football, sport and society can not remain indifferent to violence, fear and the loss of life".


A spokesman for Federation Internationale de Football Association told Efe that the organisation condemned the violence that marred the start of the game and had faith in the Russian authorities' abilities to guarantee security during the upcoming World Cup finals.

The journalist suggested that Spanish media are using the incidents between groups of radical fans to malign Russia ahead of the 2018 World Cup, even though it was not the Russians who started these clashes.

Russian authorities will be on high alert this summer for the World Cup after Russian fans were involved in pitched battles with England supporters in Marseille during Euro 2016.

He reportedly faces up to 15 years in jail in France for attempted homicide and grievous bodily harm.

Bilbao won 3-1 in the first leg in Russia last week, but the Russian side claimed a 2-1 victory in the return leg though were knocked out of Europe's second-tier competition on a 4-3 aggregate.
