Haven't seen anything about that, but AFAIK, only one City fan was on the pitch, so it's unlikely that's what happened when Rio got hit.
When Scholes scored that winner against City, some of my family at the game were in a section hit with coins by City fans, and I know people who were at a game where some of ours threw them at Bellamy. It's just cuntish behaviour that needs to be stamped out, hoping some bans are handed down quickly after today. The other coins you can see on the floor in the gif show it's no fluke Rio got hit.
