Senegalese Player, Krepin Diatta, lashed out at people, especially Africans, who mocked his physical look during the African Cup. This is what he had to say on social media:
"I am very sad to see some African brothers making fun of me. I work for our beautiful and dear African continent and what I receive in return are only insults, mockery of my brothers. This is too bad of you and racism comes from there.
I need your encouragement and not your insults. Thank you to everyone who supports me. Only God makes my strength and I am proud of my physical person. Your mockery won't change anything in my life. But one thing is for sure, we are all african."
