Milan - Cagliari has been fined $35 000 by the Italian league for its fans' racist taunts directed at Inter Milan striker Samuel Eto'o.

Sunday's match was suspended briefly after three minutes when fans insulted Eto'o every time he kicked the ball.

While racist incidents are fairly common in Italy, this marked the first time that a game has been stopped for that reason.

Once the match resumed, Eto'o scored the only goal in a 1-0 victory for the European champion.

When he played for Barcelona, Eto'o once threatened to walk off the pitch in protest following racist chanting by Real Zaragoza's supporters. Such was the abuse Eto'o received that the Cameroon international stopped bringing family members to matches.
