Tammy Abraham: Chelsea striker says mother was in tears after he received racist abuse


Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham says his mother was reduced to tears by the racist abuse he received after the Uefa Super Cup final.

Abraham missed the decisive penalty in the shootout to give Liverpool victory in Istanbul last month and was then subjected to abuse on social media.

“I remember speaking to my mum, she was emotional, she was in tears,” 21-year-old Abraham told CNN. A Chelsea spokesman said the club was “disgusted” with the “abhorrent” posts.
