Hundreds take the knee in solidarity with Marcus Rashford
The Metro says: Marcus Rashford said he is ‘lost for words’ after hundreds gathered for an anti-racism demonstration and took the knee outside his mural this evening.
The artwork in south Manchester was vandalised within hours of England’s crushing defeat against Italy in the Euros final on Sunday night.
But it has quickly become a symbol of love and solidarity after well-wishers covered it in paper hearts, England flags, flowers and poems.
Many left touching messages of support for the football star and teammates Bukayo Saka and Jordan Sancho, after they were subjected to an onslaught of vile racist abuse online after the trio missed penalties in the final moments of the game.
