Jamaican born England international, Raheem Sterling has received racist abuse on social media.
It comes two days after English football’s four-day boycott of social media, in response to ongoing online abuse, came to an end.
A spokesperson for Facebook, which owns Instagram, said it had removed the comment and “taken action” against the account responsible.
Facebook added the abuse sent to the 26-year-old was “unacceptable”.
Two Manchester City supporters were banned from football matches for five years in January 2020 for racially abusing Sterling.
Chelsea also banned a fan for life for using “racially abusive language” towards Sterling during a match at Stamford Bridge in December 2018.
