Zenit Saint Petersburg forward Hulk has alleged that he was racially abused during Saturday' Spetember 26 Russian premier League game against Spartak Moscow.

The 29-year-old was pictured blowing kisses in the direction of a section of home supporters towards the end of a heated clash at Otkrytiye Arena.

The Brazil international explained after the match that his gesture was in response to racism directed from supporters during the game.

"Unfortunately, the same things are happening - racism in the stands," he said. "I won't pay any attention to this, as I have already talked about this.
