Serbian police have recovered the drone that flew an Albanian nationalist banner over a football stadium in Belgrade, igniting a brawl on the field and fuelling simmering political tensions between Balkan rivals Serbia and Albania.

Police chief Nebojsa Stefanovic said the small drone – last seen being carried off by a Serb fan during the stadium unrest – will be checked to see where it was manufactured and purchased, with a probe carried out into who could have flown it.

The violence broke out after the drone dangling the banner circled over the field during the first half of Tuesday night’s international game.

A Serbian player grabbed the banner as Albanian players tried to protect it, and a brawl ensued.

The European Championship qualifier was called off before half time amid the chaos.
