Watford captain says he gets racist online abuse daily

Watford FC captain Troy Deeney says he and his family receive racist abuse online every day, on "every post, without fail".

He told Radio 4's Today programme that he currently takes down six to ten comments on every post, but "it's very difficult to ignore" the abuse.
