Theo Walcott’s Family have decided not to watch the Arsenal star at Euro 2012 in Ukraine as they fear they will be attacked by racists.

Ashley Walcott took to Twitter to make the decision saying:

Walcott previously endured racist taunts from Bulgarian fans during an away game in Eastern Europe last September and Ukrainian extremists have sent out a warning to black and Asian England fans not to travel to the tournament.

Walcott's mum and dad will not be supporting him at Euro 2012

Don’t worry Walcott, they’ll be there in spirit.
