Liverpool winger Rinsola Babajide says she "wanted to break my silence" after receiving racist abuse on social media.

In response to the racist abuse directed at Babajide, a spokesperson for Facebook, which owns Instagram, said: "There is no place for discriminatory abuse on Instagram and this comment has been removed for breaking our rules.

Instagram has since removed the message sent to the winger, but the account responsible remains active.

The message said that "football is only for men", and was followed by a racist remark.

In a statement, Liverpool said: "This racist and sexist attack on LFC women's Rinsola Babajide has been formally reported to the police and an investigation is under way.

"I wanted to speak up about it because I have stayed silent for so long," Babajide told BBC Sport.

Babajide said she immediately told her agent about the abuse and that he has yet to receive a response from the relevant social media platforms after contacting them.
