Soccer-F1 world champion Hamilton condemns racist abuse of England players

(Reuters) - Seven times Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton has voiced support for the three Black England soccer players who missed penalties in the Euro 2020 final on Sunday, after they were subjected to a torrent of racist abuse on social media.

Hamilton, a vocal advocate for social justice, said on Instagram on Monday that the abuse suffered by the England trio showed how much still needed to be done in the fight against racism."The pressure to deliver is felt by every sportsperson but when you are a minority representing your country this is a layered experience," Hamilton said.

"Success would feel like a double victory, but a miss feels like a two-fold failure when it's compounded with racist abuse."We must work towards a society that doesn't require Black players to prove their value or place in society only through victory. Ultimately everyone on the England team should be so proud of their achievement and how they represented us."
