PARIS (REUTERS) - France will deport Russian football fan leader Alexander Shprygin again, after he returned despite a previous expulsion in connection with violence that marred the start of Euro 2016, the Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday.
Police re-arrested the 38-year-old on Monday in the south-western city of Toulouse, where the Russian team was playing Wales.
He had already been deported on June 18 following violence before and during the England-Russia match in Marseille.
The Foreign Ministry said that Shprygin was now subject to a ban on entering France and that his visa to the Schengen passport-free travel zone had not been issued by France.
The Russian team have been knocked out of the tournament after finishing bottom of Group B with just a point from three games. The country hosts the next World Cup in 2018.
