Dominic Calvert-Lewin has emphasised the importance of challenging all racist behaviour, as the Everton striker showed his support for the Premier League’s No Room For Racism campaign.
On Friday, the Premier League launched the next phase of the initiative, with fans urged to challenge and report racism wherever it takes place, encouraging behavioural change in football and beyond.

Calvert-Lewin also offers advice to any young person who has received racist abuse.
“Tell an adult and report it,” the Everton and England forward says.
“Speak to your friends and family and voice your opinion.
“Don’t give that person who abused you the satisfaction of affecting your happiness. No-one should have that right.”
A discussion with Calvert-Lewin on racism will be made available as a free teaching material to more than 18,000 primary schools in England and Wales as part of the Premier League Primary Stars scheme.
The resource will also be made available via the Premier League Kicks and Premier League Inspires programmes.
The No Room For Racism message will be visible at Goodison Park on Saturday in the 237th Merseyside derby – and at all Premier League matches between 17-26 October.
Premier League Chief Executive Richard Masters said: "No Room For Racism represents the long-standing commitment of the Premier League and our clubs to tackle discrimination.
"This is not just about challenging and reporting abuse this weekend or next weekend but throughout this season, next season and beyond.”
