Raheem Sterling believes racist abuse is not taken as seriously as other topics.

The Manchester City and England footballer has admitted to “taking a step back” from talking about the issue in the media and is instead trying to take more action within his limits.

“I feel when it is mentioned [as] racist abuse, I don’t feel like it’s taken as seriously as if you would mention certain other topics,” Sterling said, addressing the FT Business of Sport summit.
