Elaine Thompson-Herah: Instagram blocks gold medallist who shared race win

A study commissioned by the FA found 359 accounts on twitter with explicitly racist abuse. Action taken – zero – update 11 arrests made . Thompson-Herah’s account was taken down because she may have broken copyright rules for olympic sponsors by sending clips of herself wining the gold medal to friends.

Beyond the absurdity of the detail here is the fact that accounts can be taken down rapidly if financial interests are involved, but not racist abuse.
