Kick It Out have called on Twitter and their social media counterparts to outline their plan to tackle racism after Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham was allegedly targeted with racial abuse following last night's Uefa Super Cup defeat.

"Last night we received reports of racist abuse directed at Tammy Abraham on social media after Chelsea's Uefa Super Cup match.

Kick it Out, football's anti-discrimination body, were swarmed with reports from social media users, with the 21-year-old having suffered 'disgusting' racial abuse on Twitter after the game.

The Super Cup incident comes a day after Queens Park Rangers called on Uefa to do more to tackle racism with their U18s having abandoned a match in Spain with several of their players having suffered racial abuse.

Abraham missed his penalty in the shoot-out against Liverpool which handed Jurgen Klopp's side the Super Cup trophy following a 2-2 draw in Istanbul.

In response to QPRs calls, Uefa said: "The fight to eliminate racism, discrimination and intolerance is a major priority of the organisation".

Kick it Out, who were formed 26 years ago this week, are now seeking dialogue with Twitter but have had no response from the social media giant following earlier calls to tackle the issue and expect Government action to be needed in order to spark a change.
