Champions League side Spartak Moscow have been caught up in a huge racism scandal after a more-than controversial post on social media.

The Russian side posted a video of players stretching during a training session with the caption ‘see how chocolate melts in the sun.’

Included within the video is the Brazilian star Luiz Adriano who can be seen smiling completely oblivious to the backlash the video would go on to receive. Adriano joined from AC Milan one-year-ago and is likely to be distraught with the manner that the video was posted to social media in.

The Russian giants were in English side Liverpool’s Champions League group this season and narrowly missed out on qualification to the knockout stages finishing third in the group.

Understandably, football fans from across the globe were gobsmacked by the controversial post taking to twitter to vent their outrage.
