Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has handed full control of his social media platforms to an anti-cyberbullying charity in an attempt to raise awareness of the impact of online abuse.

Henderson’s team-mates Trent Alexander-Arnold, Naby Keita and Sadio Mane became the latest victims of racist abuse on social media following the club’s 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid on Tuesday.

The abuse was labelled as “abhorrent” by the Premier League side, who called on social media platforms to do more to crack down on the issue.

From Thursday, Henderson’s Instagram, Twitter and Facebook accounts will be ran by the Cybersmile Foundation, who will use the midfielder’s following to promote its anti-cyberbullying campaign.

“Recently I’ve been thinking about what I can do, as an individual, to try and make a difference,” Henderson said.

“I’ve seen friends, team-mates, other players within football and in wider society be on the receiving end of horrendous online abuse which is now out of control.

“The platforms should be doing more but as a society we need to be kinder to each other – that’s where it starts and stops.
