Chelsea have condemned racist abuse of John Obi Mikel on Twitter, after the midfielder deleted his account.

Mikel removed his profile from the social networking site less than 24 hours after his mistake helped cost the Blues victory in the opening match of their Champions League defence against Juventus.

Chelsea originally insisted it was entirely coincidental that Mikel, who insisted he was entirely unaware of any abuse, had decided to delete the 'Mikel12Official' account he set up this summer. However, the club admitted that they have informed the police after being made aware of the developments.
