There were no pictures or videos of the event but Enrique was furious that verbal abuse is not being condemned in the world of football.

Speaking about the incident via SPORT ahead of their game against Georgia, Enrique said: "It was an insult, I don't want to get into specifics. I'm used to that. The curious thing is that the response of the person who suffered the violence is of interest and not the condemning of the insult itself.

Spain are in second place in the group and needs to beat Georgia to keep their hopes of reaching the 2022 World Cup in good shape.
