The 23-year-old provided a telling insight into the issue in football and society to help the Premier League launch the second phase of their No Room For Racism initiative.

Calvert-Lewin was one of several high-profile players, including Neal Maupay, Divock Origi, Hamza Choudhury and Manchester City Women's player Demi Stokes to speak honestly about their own personal experiences of racism as part of the Premier League's series of new educational resources and revealed that he was just a young boy when he was first confronted by the problem.

Calvert-Lewin, who will line-up against arch-rivals Liverpool in the Merseyside derby on Saturday, is not the only Premier League star to suffer racial abuse online with Wilfried Zaha and David McGoldrick just two to have reported it in recent months.

PHASE TWO OF PREMIER LEAGUE'S NO ROOM FOR RACISM CAMPAIGN As part of its long-term commitment to address racism in football and wider society, the Premier League is launching a series of new educational resources featuring content from Premier League players.

The Everton forward has been a huge advocate of the Premier League's No Room For Racism programme, which was introduced last March in an effort to tackle discrimination across all areas of football.

As part of of its second phase, the No Room For Racism message will be visible at all Premier League matches between October 17 and 26 and appear on the sleeves of every club shirt.

'It's obviously awfully sad that racism is still alive and still going on but it's also very empowering to know that people of all different ethnicities are standing with the movement and fighting for what's right.
