Chelsea keeper Courtois trends worldwide on Twitter after Madrid abuse

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois became a worldwide trending topic on Twitter on Sunday.

Courtois shutdown his account in the aftermath of Atletico Madrid's derby defeat at Real Madrid on Saturday night as he was flooded by abusive tweets.

However, after a backlash from fans wanting to show their support for the Belgian, Courtois, whose name was trending on Twitter, reinstated his account after seeing the thousands of well-wishers come out and support him.
