Fiorentina's match at Atalanta on Sunday was briefly halted in the first half due to racist abuse directed toward Fiorentina defender Dalbert.

With just over a half hour gone in the Serie A game at Stadio Ennio Tardini, referee Daniele Orsato signalled for the game to be stopped after Dalbert indicated he'd heard the abuse.

The game was brought to a halt as an announcement was read over the stadium loudspeaker imploring fans to halt the abuse.

The statement was drowned out by boos and whistles from the Atalanta supporters.

After a brief pause the game was resumed, with Fiorentina leading 1-0 after a goal from Federico Chiesa.

The incident on Sunday was yet another blight on Italian football, with the racist behaviour of some fans under the spotlight in the early season.
