After scoring against Paderborn, Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho revealed a "justice for George Floyd" shirt as part of his celebration.

Jadon Sancho revealed a "justice for George Floyd" t-shirt after putting Borussia Dortmund 2-0 up in Sunday's Bundesliga clash at Paderborn.

On his first start since the resumption of the Bundesliga, England international Sancho tucked in from Julian Brandt's cross in the 57th minute, after Thorgan Hazard had given Dortmund the lead.

In celebration, Sancho took off his Dortmund top to reveal a t-shirt featuring the name of the man who died in police custody in the United States on Monday, prompting protests across that country and beyond.

England international Sancho, who went on to complete a hat-trick as Dortmund dished out a 6-1 thrashing, was booked for removing his playing jersey.

The 20-year-old's gesture came on the same day that Borussia Monchengladbach's Marcus Thuram took a knee to mark his goal against Union Berlin.

His coach Marco Rose said the 22-year-old had "set an example against racism".
