Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha has responded after a 12-year-old boy who sent him a string of racist abuse on social media was arrested by West Midlands Police.The Ivory Coast international posted screenshots of a number of messages sent to him via Instagram Direct Messages ahead of his side’s Premier League game against Aston Villa.

It is not enough to be disgusted by these messages I received and move on.“It isn’t enough to just say #notoracism. We need action, we need education, things need to change.”The fact that such an incident is a daily occurrence on social media in 2020 was underlined after Sheffield United forward David McGoldrick came forward with racist abuse he had been subjected to over the same weekend.last_img read more
