Ex-Arsenal and Barcelona star Thierry Henry has quit social media. Henry announced on Friday that he would be leaving his social media accounts until tech companies started doing more to hold users accountable for their actions.

His decision follows a recent spate of online racist abuse targeting Black soccer players.

The former France international who won the World Cup in 1998 says he hopes his action will inspire others to do the same.
