Champions League game resumes after match abandoned over racism accusation

An international football game has resumed tonight after a racism row erupted on the pitch. It happened just 14 minutes into a Champions League game between Paris St-Germain’s and Istanbul Basaksehir last night.

A match official is alleged to have made a racist remark about one of the players who got a red card. It led to loud exchanges at the touchline and ultimately players from both teams abandoned the game.
