Colombia international Sanchez, 24, shared an Instagram story of a screenshot that showed users commenting with monkey emojis on one of his posts. The centre-back wrote: “Nothing changes.”
A subsequent tweet from Tottenham’s official account read: “We are disgusted by the racist messages received by Davinson Sanchez today and are calling on social media platforms to take action.
“We stand with you, @daosanchez26, and all those continuing to suffer abuse online.”
Sanchez’s Instagram story followed the team’s 2-2 draw with Newcastle in the Premier League earlier on Sunday.
Spurs trailed to a Joelinton strike for just 90 seconds before Harry Kane netted an instant equaliser, the England captain scoring again within five minutes to give Jose Mourinho’s side a 2-1 half-time lead.
Arsenal loanee Joe Willock then equalised for hosts Newcastle in the final moments of the match.
