As football's boycott of social media comes to an end, we've published a series of videos to help users report abusive messages when they see them.

While it remains our position that social media companies need to do more to prevent online abuse, we all have a part to play in highlighting posts that breach the channels' respective codes of conduct.

The advice in the videos above is correct as of the date of publication, Tuesday 4 May 2021.
