Inter fined for 'existential' harm to Napoli fan

ROME, Aug 5 (Reuters) - Italian champions Inter Milan have been ordered to pay a Napoli fan €1,500 for 'existential damage' caused by banners calling Naples the 'sewer of Italy' displayed at San Siro last October.

Italian news agencies said on Tuesday that a Naples court had ordered Inter to pay the fan, identified only by initials, compensation and legal costs for insults which refer to a refuse crisis that left garbage rotting in Naples' streets.

'Ciao cholera sufferers!' read another of the banners seen at the Oct. 6 game which the fan's lawyer, Raffaele Di Monda, said had made his client feel 'indignant and deeply hurt'.

Inter, who won the game 2-1, had already been punished by the Italian league with the closure of the sections of San Siro where the banners had been shown for the following home match.

The club fought against the lawsuit arguing that the Naples court did not have jurisdiction.
