Seven in 10 Premier League footballers are subject to abuse on Twitter, with Cristiano Ronaldo receiving the most hate, a report has found.

Manchester United players make up eight of the 10 most targeted stars, with Ronaldo, Harry Maguire and Marcus Rashford receiving more than 20,000 abusive tweets between them.

The study by Ofcom and The Alan Turing Institute found hundreds of abusive tweets are sent to footballers around the clock.

This equates to nearly 60,000 abusive messages directed towards Premier League players in the first half of last season alone — an average of 362 every day, or one every four minutes.

Shockingly, one in 12 of these attacks (8.6 per cent) targeted a player's race or another protected characteristic.

The report comes ahead of the Online Safety Bill, which is expected to return to the Commons before the autumn.
