Czech player makes racial abuse allegation

Poland: Czech Republic defender Theodor Gebre Selassie says he was racially abused by Russian fans at his team’s opening game of the European Championship.

The only black man on the Czech team downplayed the seriousness of the abuse. He said the incident was nothing “extreme”.

Gebre Selassie said on Sunday he is ready to put it behind him.

Uefa has pledged zero tolerance of discrimination during the three-week tournament in Poland and Ukraine.

On Saturday, Football Against Racism in Europe, an anti-racism network that operates with Uefa support, said it identified verbal insults targeted at Gebre Selassie, whose father is Ethiopian.
