ANKARA (AA) – The sports world on Monday marked the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination with social media posts speaking out against racism.

Spain’s La Liga shared a photo of football players from a Real Betis-Celta Vigo match wearing T-shirts saying “Together vs racism.”

La Liga teams Celta Vigo, Valencia, Villarreal, and Granada also shared Twitter posts with their players sporting the shirts.

On Twitter, Greek basketball club Olympiacos quoted late South African human rights activist and Nobel Peace Prize winner Desmond Tutu: “My humanity is bound up in yours, for we can only be human together.”

The Football Association of Wales also marked the anti-discrimination day with a special video.

Declared in 1966, March 21 is used annually to take action and raise voices against racial discrimination.
