Lewis Hamilton has urged countries around the world to remove “racist symbols” after the toppling of the statue of a slave trader in Bristol.
The world champion saluted anti-racism protesters for tearing down a monument to the 17th-century slave trader Edward Colston at a demonstration on Sunday.
Hamilton said governments around the world should “implement the peaceful removal of these racist symbols”.
He has made a series of statements amid global anti-racism protests.
