The racialisation of Emma Raducanu

SPIKED says i’m old enough to remember when constantly pointing out that someone is an immigrant was considered at best rude and at worst really racist. Not so today, it seems, if the commentariat’s response to Emma Raducanu’s stunning victory at the US Open is anything to go by.

Last night was special. We witnessed a sporting fairytale unfurl, a new British icon being born, a determined 18-year-old from Bromley making history. All the clichés in the world cannot do justice to Raducanu’s achievement in New York City.
