This happened hours after Chelsea tied with the local Parisian team, PSG, in a heated Champions League match. This is only the most recent example of racism in the sport, both against fans and players. With the World Cup heading to Russia in 2018, FIFA worries that racial tensions in the region will disrupt the highly anticipated tournament. </span></p><p><strong>Guest:&nbsp;</strong><em><a href="https://twitter.com/willtidey">Will Tidey</a> is the Global Sports Manager for <a href="https://twitter.com/Bleacherreport">Bleacher Report</a>.</em></p><p><iframe frameborder="no" height="166" scrolling="no" src="https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=https%3A//api.soundcloud.com/tracks/195391417&amp;color=ff5500&amp;auto_play=false&amp;show_artwork=false&amp;hide_related=false&amp;show_comments=true&amp;show_user=true&amp;show_reposts=false" width="100%"></iframe><span style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 23.9999980926514px; line-height: 22px;">WHO urges countries to cut downon sugars</span></p><p><span id="docs-internal-guid-9a981408-0a67-b184-350e-c454f962b08b">A new report from the World Health Organization says the world is eating too much sugar.
