Sebastien Bassong: Suffered racist abuse on Twitter

Norwich chief executive David McNally has confirmed the club will speak to police about alleged racist comments directed at Sebastien Bassong.

The Cameroon defender headed a late equaliser to earn the Canaries a 1-1 draw at Everton in the Premier League on Saturday and was on Saturday night believed to be the subject of racist abuse on Twitter.

Norwich are aware of the comments and McNally tweeted on Sunday: "For those asking last night, we will be following up with the police regarding the racist comments reported after the game."

He later added: "Not relevant which team they support. Don't accept racism from anyone and so these comments will be reported to the police."
