There has been a number of cases of racism in football in recent years, with supporting hurling abuse at players in some of Europe's top leagues.

The former Super Eagles has revealed that China is no different, but says he would wallk off if he was racially abused in the future.

"If it happens to me I would report it to the referee and see what they do, but if they don't take action about it then I'm going to walk off because it should not be done to any player or anyone in the world," Ighalo told Sky Sports News.

"In one game in China I got called all sorts of names and after the game, I didn't shake his hand. I walked straight into the dressing room, I was angry, I reported it to the FA.

"I didn't press forward with it, I just let it go because I'm just this kind of guy. I don't like to drag issues out. But I don't think it should be condoned in any country."
