Premier League clubs have joined the stand against racism as support continues to grow for the Black Lives Matter movement in the wake of George Floyd's death.
Floyd was filmed being arrested by police in Minneapolis last week, repeatedly begging for breath as white officer Derek Chauvin, who has since been charged with third-degree murder, knelt on his neck for almost nine minutes.
The incident has sparked protests around the world, and leading clubs from the sporting community are among those rallying as social media undergoes a Blackout Tuesday trend.
A number of Premier League clubs have joined the protest, as you can see below.
