Chelsea midfielder Yossi Benayoun has revealed he was the victim of anti-Semitic abuse on Twitter.
The Israel international retweeted a message, containing expletives and referring to him being Jewish, after he had thanked his followers for their birthday wishes.
Some nice people in this world..— Yossi Benayoun (@YossiBenayoun15) May 7, 2013
Last month, Chelsea launched an investigation into reports that supporters targeted Benayoun with anti-Semitic chants.
Benayoun, 33, was taunted by his own club's fans when he came off the bench in a 2-2 draw with Liverpool.
Information from the Press Association was used in this report.
