A fan who made a Hitler salute at an Australian soccer match was banned for life on Wednesday, with the sport’s governing body saying it had zero tolerance for “offensive behavior.”

The man, who has not been named publicly, was among a group of supporters at the Australia Cup final in Sydney on Saturday caught on camera making fascist gestures and reportedly chanting far-right Croatian songs.

Football Australia said one spectator has been identified and handed a lifetime ban from any future games it sanctions, including national team, A-League and Australia Cup fixtures.
