Tottenham and Hoffenheim both issued messages of support for Sessegnon, who has played for England’s under-21 team.
“Everyone at the club is with you,” Tottenham wrote on Twitter. “We are proud of the rich ethnic diversity that exists across our communities, fans, staff and players. We are driven by inclusion and equality for all and nobody should have to endure such repulsive abuse.”
Sessegnon joined Hoffenheim this month on a season-long loan.
Crystal Palace player Wilfried Zaha has said that Black athletes are regularly subjected to online racial abuse.
