The frustration in his voice was clear. Kevin-Prince Boateng had decided to draw the line. It wasn't the first time he had faced racial abuse and he wasn't going to take it any more. The AC Milan midfielder took a stand and, in my view, became a hero because of it.
During our 15-minute phone conversation, an exclusive interview for CNN, it was clear Boateng was not only frustrated but also upset that football authorities have not been doing enough to combat racism.
He was angry that there is currently no rule or law in place that allows players or teams to walk off the field if they are racially abused.
