Manchester United defender Ashley Young was the target of online racist abuse following their Champions League defeat to Barcelona on Tuesday.

Football's equality and inclusion organisation Kick it Out highlighted the incidents on social media, saying: "Yet another black player, this time Ashley Young, targeted with racist abuse on social media after tonight's Champions League game."

It follows a number of high-profile cases of racism in recent months, with Raheem Sterling, Danny Rose and Mohamed Salah all targets of alleged racist abuse.

Salah was the target of an alleged racist chant by several Chelsea supporters, while Sterling was the victim of alleged racial abuse at Chelsea late last year and while on international duty with England in Montenegro last month.

Last week, Arsenal launched an investigation into a video circulating on social media purporting to show one of their supporters directing a racist insult at Napoli player Kalidou Koulibaly.
