Gary Lineker has called on the handball law to be changed

Gary Lineker labelled the decision to give Tottenham a penalty against Leicester on Saturday as “appalling” following Spurs’ 1-1 draw at White Hart Lane on Saturday.

Referee Robert Madley pointed to the sport after striker Vincent Janssen was wrestled to the floor on the 24th minute.

The 22-year-old Spurs international was then able to pick himself up from the floor and convert from the spot to open up the scoring before attacker Ahmed Musa equalised for the Foxes just after half-time.

Match of the Day host and former Leicester and Tottenham player Lineker took to his personal Twitter account during the match to label the decision as “appalling”.

The decision has enabled Spurs to maintain their position as the only unbeaten side in the Premier League after 10 fixtures.
