Leicester City and Ghana defender Daniel Amartey has been a victim of racial abuse after Leicester City's FA Cup triumph over Chelsea on Saturday at Wembley.

Ghanaian defender Daniel Amartey has been accused of showing gross disrespect to Chelsea after a video of him emerged tossing away the Chelsea pennant after his side 1-0 victory.

Amartey is seen picking the Chelsea pennant from the table and throwing it behind him.

The video has generated a lot of talk with most Chelsea fans bashing him for being disrespectful for his act.

With the many messages directed his way the Ghanaian has been a victim of vile racial abuse on social media.

However, Twitter has deleted some of the racist messages for violating rules but not all of them.

A Twitter spokesperson told Sky Sports: "There is no room for racist abuse on Twitter and we are resolute in our commitment to ensure the football conversation on our service is safe for fans, players and everyone involved in the game.

"When we identify accounts that violate any of the Twitter Rules, we take enforcement action.

"We have proactively engaged and continue to collaborate with our valued partners in football to identify ways to tackle this issue collectively and will continue to play our part in curbing this unacceptable behaviour - both online and offline."

Early reports claim one of the deleted messages referenced late Leicester owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, who died in a helicopter crash in October 2018.

He was also racially abused on Instagram, with several accounts posting 'monkey' emojis on videos of the player celebrating the FA Cup win.

The messages were posted on an Amartey fan account and have been up for more than two hours.

However, Leicester City will be hosted by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday.
