World football governing body, FIFA, has announced that its anti-racism taskforce has been scrapped.

The decision to end the work of the Taskforce against Racism and Discrimination has been met with widespread criticism.

Former FIFA presidential candidate Prince Ali was quoted as saying: “The notion that the current FIFA leadership believe that the taskforce’s recommendations have been implemented is shameful.”

Anti-racism organisation Kick It Out released a statement, which read: “This comes at a time when there is clear evidence that discrimination, prejudice and hate are on the rise in developed societies.”
