Sun 16 May 2021 | 13:10

Daniel Amartey was subjected to racial abuse after Leicester City’s victory in their FA Cup final over Chelsea.

One of the abusive messages was about Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha’s death, who was Leicester City’s former owner who got killed in a helicopter crash in 2018.

A Twitter spokesman told 

Sky Sports News

:

"There is no room for racist abuse on Twitter and we are resolute in our commitment to ensure the football conversation on our service is safe for fans, players and everyone involved in the game.

"When we identify accounts that violate any of the Twitter Rules, we take enforcement action.

"We have proactively engaged and continue to collaborate with our valued partners in football to identify ways to tackle this issue collectively and will continue to play our part in curbing this unacceptable behaviour - both online and offline."

Youri Tielemans met the back of the net and secured Leicester’s FA Cup success as they vanquished Chelsea 1-0.

The squad had a celebration after the game in the dressing room, with Amartey throwing a Chelsea pennant on his shoulder.
