A man who racially abused Marcus Rashford on Twitter after the striker missed a penalty in England’s Euro 2020 final shoot-out defeat has been jailed.

The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said Justin Lee Price sent a “clearly racist” tweet to the Manchester United player after the loss in July 2021.

According to CPS spokesman the 19-year-old’s actions constituted a “hate crime”.

Price, of Grandison Gardens, Worcester, was jailed for six weeks at Kidderminster Magistrates’ Court.

He previously admitted one count of sending a grossly offensive message by a public communication network at a hearing on 17 March.
