Crystal Palace winger Zaha reveals racial abuse after Arsenal draw

Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha has revealed he received racial abuse following Sunday's 2-2 draw with Arsenal.

Zaha was awarded a penalty after being fouled by Granit Xhaka, with Luka Milivojevic converting the equalising goal for Palace.

Some one-eyed fans thought Zaha dived to win the spot-kick and took the next step by racially abusing him on social media.

The Ivorian responded on Instagram, stating: "For all the people taking it one step further and being racist and wishing death on my family I wish you and your families the best too x p.s my life is still very good despite your hate."
