He said to The Sun: “It was a minor incident but it was still unexpected and I’m disappointed.

“We will be conducting an investigation into an alleged incident to establish the facts and we will work in conjunction with our stewarding company colleagues in that regard,” the statement read.

“We can make no further comment at present.”
