UEFA have announced they are to investigate allegations of racist chanting directed at Mario Balotelli during Sunday's Euro 2012 draw between Italy and Spain.

Fans' Embassy of Football Supporters Europe (FSE) have detailed the abuse Balotelli received from Spain supporters and UEFA have decided to launch an inquiry into that game, plus Russia's tie with the Czech Republic.

Italy boss Cesare Prandelli rejected claims that Balotelli had been abused. "That's absolutely untrue," he said. However, eye witnesses said the abuse was clear.
