The Ladies European Tour (LET) stand united with the football community and many other sport organisations in taking part in a social media boycott from 15:00 BST Friday 30 April to 23:59 BST on Monday 3 May.

In taking part in this boycott, we want to show solidarity and help amplify its message that nobody should have to suffer abuse, racism or harassment on social media because they compete or are involved in professional sport.

Alexandra Armas, LET CEO, said: “We recognise the positive influence that social media plays in sport, in connecting fanbases with their heroes and growing global audiences.

“However, it is unacceptable that our members and anyone associated with the Tour can be targeted through these platforms with appalling abuse, without any consequences. We stand united with other sports in a unified silence and helping to highlight that more must be done in eradicating online discriminatory abuse.”
