Ryan Sessegnon took to Instagram to out a disgusting act of racism this week, after a user of the social media app sent him a barrage of unwarranted abuse.
The Spurs youngster screenshotted the messages on his Instagram story with the caption: “Honestly unbelievable smh. The craziest thing is I’m not even surprised anymore. Disgusting.”
The expletive-laden messages themselves included the repeated use of the N-word, as well as various mentions of slavery.
Of course, Tottenham fans all over the world have rallied around Sessegnon over the past 24 hours, sending messages of support and condemning the racist actions.
The official Tottenham Twitter account also sent out a message of solidarity to the England U-21 star yesterday.
Sessegnon is currently out on loan at Hoffenheim in the Bundesliga as he looks to get minutes under his belt away from his parent club. So far, he has played five games for the German side this season (TransferMarkt).
Let’s take a look at how some Spurs fans sent messages of support this week:
