"Prince William has revealed he is 'sickened' by the racist abuse directed towards England's players after the Euros final.
It comes after Bukayo Saka, Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho were flooded with racist abuse on social media after failing to score their penalties.
The FA has condemned the vitriolic comments towards the England players, describing it as 'disgusting behaviour'.
Prince William, who was in Wembley Stadium with Kate and their son George last night, has also now condemned the 'abhorrent' abuse.
He said: "I am sickened by the racist abuse aimed at England players after last night’s match.
"It is totally unacceptable that players have to endure this abhorrent behaviour. It must stop now and all those involved should be held accountable."
This is the worst side of the Internet and social media. Apparently George has been the target on online Twitter abuse after the photo of his expression at England's loss. Cowards on both accounts, children should never be targeted regardless whether they're the everyday people, celeb, from a political family or Royal. To be trolled by adults is beyond despicable. I'm off my soapbox now.
