Tottenham defender Davinson Sanchez racially abused on Instagram after 2-2 draw with Newcastle

DAVINSON SANCHEZ has become the latest footballer to suffer vile racist abuse on social media.

The defender, 24, was targeted after Tottenham drew 2-2 with Newcastle United at St James' Park.

The Colombian shared a screenshot on his Instagram story that showed a number of monkey emojis.

He captioned the post "nothing changes" along with a sleepy-face emoji.

The incident followed full-time in the North East in a game where Sanchez lost possession in the build-up to Newcastle's opening goal.

The news follows two such incidents already over Easter weekend.

West Brom striker Callum Robinson revealed he was racially abused after the Baggies beat Chelsea.

The Premier League club have contacted West Midlands Police over the matter, which also featured monkey emojis sent to his Instagram account.

While Swansea City's Jamal Lowe was targeted on Friday night.

The 26-year-old wrote that there are "some serious idiots out there" when he reposted another comment featuring monkey emojis and a derogatory message to his Instagram story.

His club highlighted that it was "the third time in space of seven weeks where one of our players has been subjected to such abhorrent messages".

Last month Arsenal legend Thierry Henry took a stand by quitting social media, citing the hideous abuse dished out daily.
