Odsonne Edouard has given his support to the #blacklivesmatter campaign that has swept from the United States over the last week.

The death of George Floyd in Minnesota horrified the world as the video was relayed by social media sparking unrest in several American cities and international protests at US Embassies.

Sportsmen have been quick to lend their sympathy and support with Jadon Sancho revealing a T-shirt of support after scoring for Borussia Dortmund at the weekend.

Formula One world champions Lewis Hamilton has been very vocal in his support for the cause of Black Lives matter while the Liverpool players took the knee during training at Anfield yesterday.

Edouard has become the first high profile Scottish based sportsperson to lend his support with the issues in the USA echoed in sport where there seems to be a glass ceiling with very few black footballers going on to have a career in management.
