NO ARRESTS have been made following a 'racist tweet' sent about Reading FC captain Liam Moore last week. 

The Royals skipper deactivated his Twitter account on Friday night after being subjected to racial abuse on the social media platform. 

In a post announcing his exit from the website, he wrote: “I have enjoyed engaging with many of you over the years on here but tonight was just another example of Twitter being toxic!

"You have to stand for something and for that reason I'm deactivating my account.

"Thanks for your support."

Since then, Thames Valley Police have been investigating a ‘racist tweet’ sent about Liam Moore. 

A TVP spokesperson said: “This [incident] relates to a report that is being investigated by Thames Valley Police as a racially aggravated public order offence, and treated as a hate incident.

“The report is in relation to a racist tweet regarding a Reading Football Club player, and was reported to the force early on Saturday morning (10/4).

“An investigation is currently underway with regards to this incident. No arrests have been made. 

“Thames Valley Police takes all reports of hate incidents extremely seriously, and would always encourage reports to be made, as it can help the force in giving victims the support they need.

“The force is supporting Reading FC in relation to this allegation.

This comes as Royals boss Veljko Paunovic backed his captain following the incident. 

Speaking to the Chronicle earlier today, he said: “I spoke with him right after the game when I heard what happened.

"He needed support at that moment, but he is a strong guy and a huge leader. 

"He will bounce back from that.”
