Rinsola Babajide shared screenshots of the abuse she received in April; Speaking on the Women's Football Show, Babajide said: "It is draining and tiring... as a Black female in the game, I just feel like it is part of playing the sport because it has happened so often" Liverpool winger Rinsola Babajide says online abuse is something she has to deal with on a regular basis as a Black woman in the game Liverpool Women winger Rinsola Babajide has described the abuse she receives online as "draining and tiring" but hopes the recent cross-sport social media boycott can inspire positive change.

The 22-year-old recently shared a screenshot of the racist and sexist abuse she was sent on Instagram in April, just one of a growing number of athletes who have been targeted on social media platforms in recent months.

"Hopefully social media platforms let us know they don't support the negative words that people are using on social media and put a stop to it - whether that's making it harder to verify your account and own an account on social media, or if it's them deactivating and swiftly removing negative comments they see."

Where abuse occurs, Babajide contacts her agent who then gets in touch with the relevant authorities and the social media platforms.

Sky Sports is committed to making and our channels on social media platforms a place for comment and debate that is free of abuse, hate and profanity.

"A lot of us have actually spoken out and social media platforms are still not being accountable."

Despite reaching the conclusion that she is no longer surprised the abuse occurs, Babajide is adamant the perpetrators will not stop her from playing the sport she loves.
