Omnisport

Rhian Brewster again showed solidarity with the anti-racism protests sweeping the world as his match-winning performance inspired Swansea City against Middlesbrough.

The highly rated striker, who is on loan from Liverpool, held up a shirt that read "our colour is not a crime" as he celebrated the first of his two goals in a 3-0 win at the Riverside Stadium. 

Brewster scored twice inside three minutes midway through the first half as Swansea raced in front on Saturday, with Andre Ayew adding a 34th-minute penalty that completed the scoring.

The Liverpool prospect has scored six goals in 12 Championship appearances since joining Swansea in January as the Welsh side chase a place in the play-offs.

Brewster, 20, previously made a passionate case for equality in social media posts supporting the Black Lives Matter movement, saying "a level playing field is all we have been crying out for".
