At the start of the week, it was reported that a man had been arrested by police for racism against Son Heung-min. The abuse was aimed at the player during his sides match with Chelsea on Sunday.

This is unfortunately not the first time the Spurs attacker has been a subject to racist abuse as at the start of the year a man was arrested for racist insults towards the striker during his sides match with Manchester United.

The Korean who was sent off in the match against Chelsea for kicking out at Antonio RĂ¼diger. The aforementioned was then subjected to abuse from the home fans inside the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The 24-year-old German defender reportedly had monkey chants and gestures made towards him. This was described to the referee at the time and reported announcements where made from the stadium announcements for the fans to stop.

The abuse suffered has sparked debate throughout the UK with Manchester United legend Gary Neville saying "we have a racism problem in the Premier League in England. And the Premier League have to step up, they hide behind the FA on this issue."

Elsewhere UK Rapper Stormzy recently came out and said 100% there is a racism problem in the UK. Although these comments were badly reported by the Brittish media summing up the issues with racism.

Hopefully, in time, these scenes will be a thing of the past as we move forward and look to rid the game and the world of racism.
