Summary

A look at the four days when the footballing world, with support from across sport, used its voice by staying silent on social media. The boycott was the latest attempt at tackling the racist abuse suffered by black and Asian players. Yet even those at the centre of the campaign conceded little would change as a result. Nesta McGregor speaks to victims, social media companies and those charged with cleaning up the sport to investigate why the abuse is happening and what can be done to stop it.
