Refs can deal with racist abuse - Riley

Premier League referees chief Mike Riley says the officials selected at Euro 2012 are well equipped to deal with any incidents of racism during the championship.

Mario Balotelli has previously insisted he would leave the field if he was abused but Uefa President Michel Platini has warned that any player doing that could be booked.

Riley tells BBC Radio 5 live breakfast that referees have the skills to deal with any kind of abuse should it arise.
