Lescott says racism fears a 'shame'

England defender Joleon Lescott says it is a "shame" that fears of racism are taking centre stage ahead of this summer's European Championship.

"It's a shame we are talking about it, I think we always will be," he said.

The 29-year-old revealed his family would not be going to watch him at the tournament, insisting their absence is "for no particular reason".
