Michel Platini says referees can stop games if there is racist abuse

Uefa president Michel Platini says they are working hard to protect players from any sort of racist abuse and says referees must stop games if there are any problems during games.

Last week a BBC Panorama programme highlighted incidents of racism at stadiums in Poland and Ukraine, hosts of Euro 2012, which starts on Friday.

But Platini, speaking to BBC sports editor David Bond, says referees have the power to stop a game if there is racist abuse.
