The funeral of the policeman murdered in Friday's football violence has taken place in Catania. What has upset me, and I should think the whole of Italy, is the image of his nine-year-old son standing there in a policeman's uniform. No words can express the tragedy and futility of this death more clearly than that.

For the media, politicians and football officials present at the funeral, I suppose today marks the end of a stage in football's crisis. But for ispettore Raciti's family, the pain is only just beginning.
No football is to be played in Italy for at least another week.
