Premier League players will continue to take the knee before all matches next season, the League has announced.

The decision follows a meeting of top-flight captains on Monday and is “wholeheartedly supported by the Premier League”.

A statement from the captains, released by the Premier League, read: “We feel now, more than ever, it is important for us to continue to take the knee as a symbol of our unity against all forms of racism.

“We remain resolutely committed to our singular objective of eradicating racial prejudice wherever it exists, to bring about a global society of inclusion, respect and equal opportunities for all.”
