BBC Sport - Yaya Toure: Manchester City midfielder calls abuse 'a disgrace'

Twitter abuse a disgrace - Yaya Toure

Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure says abuse directed to him on Twitter after City's 1-0 win over rivals Manchester United is "a disgrace".

Police are investigating claims that Toure was racially abused on the social media platform only hours after he reactivated his account following a five-month absence.

"We need to do something to try to tell people those kinds of behaviour have to stop," Toure told BBC Sport. "I want those people to understand what they're doing is wrong."
