Junior Stanislas has revealed the racist abuse that has twin sons have had to encounter.
The Bournemouth star was on the scoresheet against Stoke at the weekend, netting the winner in a 1-0 victory at the Britannia Stadium.
After the match, the former West Ham winger was sent vile messages on social media, calling him a "black *****".
It has led to outright condemnation from both clubs while the 31-year-old has opened up over what his sons have gone through.
Stanislas has 'one-in-a-million' twin boys, aged nine, with one having different skin tones from the other.
He told Sky Sports: "Without going into too much detail, I've got twin boys who are nine, and within the past me and one of my sons have both had racial abuse.
"I had to wake up in the morning, without going into detail, what had happened because they had to go to school, and people might mention it to them.
"The difficult thing with my sons are, them being twins, they're sort of one-in-a-million twins.
"One is my colour, dark hair, dark eyes, the other has white skin, blonde hair, blue eyes.
"The sad fact of the matter is one of them has already seen racism and I'm sure will see it throughout his life.
"And the other one - although they're exactly the same race - will never see it and never experience it, which is a real shame.
"I know the Premier League are doing a lot to make people more aware of it and try to eradicate it.
"But racism, sadly, I don't think will ever be fully gone.
"If people become more aware of it, they can act in the right matter, certainly on social media."
