Aragones wins appeal.

Spain coach Luis Aragones has successfully appealed against a pounds 2,000 fine for making derogatory comments about Thierry Henry.

Aragones was caught on camera making racist remarks about the Arsenal striker in October 2004.

The following month England's black players were treated to a tirade of racist abuse from fans in Madrid.

The Spanish Football Federation opened an investigation with a judge recommending Aragones be fined for behaviour "contrary to the good order of the sport".

Aragones said yesterday: "I went to court because it was a stain on my reputation and because the offence did not exist as some judges thought."
