A university has withdrawn an offer made to a student following racist abuses against England players after the Euro 2020 final.
Video footage from a Snapchat group chat was circulated on Instagram, in which a man was heard using racist language towards Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka, who missed penalties in the shootout at Wembley.
A spokesman for Nottingham Trent University said: “This allegation does not involve an NTU student. We do not tolerate discrimination of any kind, including racism.
“We looked into the matter immediately and consequently withdrew an offer to one applicant.”
