A university has withdrawn an offer made to a student following racist abuses against England players after the Euro 2020 final.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.”

Police have arrested five people on charges of racially abusing England players online since Sunday’s loss to Italy.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson revealed on Wednesday that the government plans to expand football ban orders for online racism, while social media companies face hefty fines for failing to remove abuse from their platforms .
