A teenager has been arrested on suspicion of sending a racist tweet aimed at Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck.
The post was made after Welbeck netted the winning goal during an FA Cup quarter-final clash against his former club Manchester United on 9 March.
Manchester-born Welbeck joined the Gunners for £16m last summer.
The 15-year-old boy, from the Salisbury area, was arrested on suspicion of racial abuse and released on bail until 13 April, Wiltshire Police said.
