Shelvey incites Cardiff fans with 'swim away' gesture
Swansea midfielder Jonjo Shelvey could face action from the football authorities after television footage emerged apparently showing him attempting to incite Cardiff fans following Sunday's South Wales derby.
Swansea lost 1-0 at Cardiff City Stadium as Steven Caulker headed home the only goal against his former club.
At the full-time whistle the Swansea players went to go and applaud the travelling support, but, on his way to that end of the ground, Shelvey appears to make a gesture known as 'swim away' towards the Cardiff fans.
It refers to an incident which took place in 1988 where Cardiff fans allegedly retreated into the sea after the two sets of supporters clashed.
