Liverpool Women's Rinsola Babajide posted about her new boots on her social media account and a user replied saying, "football is only for men…", followed by the use of a racial slur; Instagram did not deem the user's profile to have broken their 'Community Guidelines' Liverpool Women winger Rinsola Babajide has highlighted the racist and sexist abuse she suffered on Instagram on Thursday.

Championship side Swansea were the first side to take the stand following a spate of "abhorrent" racial abuse on social media platforms, with three of their first-team players subjected to racist abuse since February.



Babajide posted about her new boots on her social media account and a user replied saying, "football is only for men…", followed by the use of a racial slur.



The comment was reported to Instagram and is no longer visible on the post, which Babajide screenshotted and posted on her social media channels with the caption: "What is wrong with people."



Babajide has to deal with abuse on social media "weekly", Sky Sports News has been told.

Swansea have been joined by Birmingham and Rangers in a week-long social media blackout to take a stand against online racist abuse.

In a subsequent post, Babajide showed a screenshot of a message she had received from someone who had tried - and failed - to get her abuser reported on Instagram.
