Police have arrested a man suspected of racially abusing West Bromwich Albion footballer Romaine Sawyers online.
West Midlands Police said a 49-year-old man from Kingswinford, near Birmingham, was questioned in custody on Friday evening (29 January).
West Brom contacted police after Sawyers was sent a racist message during Tuesday's 5-0 defeat to Manchester City.
The force's football hate crime officer is also investigating reports of another racist comment towards the player.
A club statement said: "Albion will offer Romaine the relevant support required at this time and continues with its long-standing commitment to help rid football of racism."
Albion boss Sam Alladyce also offered his support and questioned what could be done to stop online abuse.
