Peterborough United striker Ivan Toney has become the latest football player to be subjected to racist abuse.

Toney, who scored twice for Peterborough against Portsmouth last night at Fratton Park, received a racist message on social media.

It follows a spate of recent incidents. England players Danny Rose and Raheem Sterling were abused during an England game in Montenegro.

Peterborough United issued a statement saying they were aware of the message. They said it was "wholly unacceptable" and they would be reporting it to the football authorities, social networks and the police.
