Jofra Archer is once more at the centre of yet more racist abuse after he received a series of racially-charged messages and subsequently posted on his Instagram.
The 24-year-old, who helped England win the 2019 World Cup, said the issue needed to be properly addressed. “I will never understand how people feel so free to say these things to another human being,” said Archer.
I’ve given a lot of thought about reacting to this and I hope that no one else has to deal with stuff like this on a regular basis, it isn’t ever acceptable and should be addressed properly in my opinion.”
It isn’t the first time that Archer has spoken out about racist abuse. He was racially abused at the end of the first Test against New Zealand as he scored a second-innings 30 during England’s defeat in Mount Maunganui last November.
