Rhian Brewster, a Sheffield United and England U21 striker, was racially harassed in March of this year.

After racially assaulting Sheffield United star Rhian Brewster on Instagram, a 14-year-old youngster was submitted to Youth Offending Services.

The England U21 international brought up the issue of racism.

A police official told Sky Sports News: "South Yorkshire Police contacted us in June 2021 regarding a case of online racist abuse directed at a footballer.

"Officers discovered and spoke with a 14-year-old boy after conducting investigations.



"He has acknowledged responsibility and has been referred to Youth Offending Services in accordance with the victim's desires."

Each local authority in England and Wales administers the Youth Offending Service, which aims to "set right the harm that has already been done while also preventing future offending."

West Yorkshire Police and Instagram have been approached by Sky Sports News for updates on their own investigations. Instagram said in March that they were unable to take acclaim.
