Micah Richards has called for certain racist words to be banned from use on social media.

The former footballer says big companies claim they are tackling the issue of hate speech online, but “people are getting racially abused every single day – they’re not doing enough about it”.

Richards, now a successful pundit, talks to Sky’s Martha Kelner about the racism he endured before, during and after his playing career.
