A teenager has been cautioned for 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.

A Wiltshire Police spokesperson said the 15-year-old boy, from the Salisbury area and who was arrested on 15 March, had been given a youth caution.
