A man who admitted posting racially offensive comments about the Bolton Wanderers footballer Fabrice Muamba has been sentenced to 56 days in jail. Liam Stacey pleaded guilty to the charge of a racially-aggravated public order offence at Swansea Magistrates last week.
The Swansea University student posted the comments on Twitter shortly after Mr Muamba collapsed during an FA cup tie against Tottenham Hotspur earlier this month. He was arrested shortly after the comments were made.
The Swansea University student jailed after admitting a charge of inciting racial hatred has lost his appeal.
Liam Stacey could be released today after being jailed on Tuesday for 56 days for admitting inciting racial hatred against Fabrice Muamba.
