Ryan Sessegnon, on loan at Hoffenheim from Tottenham, says he is disgusted by the racist abuse he has been subjected to online and has shared screenshots of the messages he received on social media.

“Honestly unbelievable. The craziest thing is I’m not even surprised anymore. Disgusting,” Sessegnon wrote on Instagram. Hoffenheim and Spurs offered their support to the 20-year-old winger.

Tottenham tweeted: “Everyone at the club is with you @RyanSessegnon. We are proud of the rich ethnic diversity that exists across our communities, fans, staff and players. We are driven by inclusion and equality for all and nobody should have to endure such repulsive abuse.”
