He was met with a barrage of racist abuse, death threats and an image of white supremacist hate group Ku Klux Klan.

Abraham's girlfriend, Leah Monroe, hit back at the vile threats on Instagram, saying there is a "special place in hell" for the trolls.

And Blues boss Frank Lampard said he was "disgusted" by the comments.

Leah, a lifestyle vlogger, wrote: "You racist scum bags just know there is a special place in hell reserved for each and every single one of you.

"The lowest of the low! I honestly pity you. You should feel so ashamed for yourselves. Absolutely disgusting!!!

"0 [zero] tolerance policy!! ANYONE who steps out of line will immediately be reported accordingly and blocked permanently!"

Lampard said today in his press conference ahead of Sunday's game against Leicester: "Tammy is obviously more than disappointed with what has happened but I am particularly disgusted by the so-called Chelsea fan.

"We saw the different ends of the spectrum on Wednesday evening.

'SPECIAL PLACE IN HELL'

"Tammy Abraham asked me to take the fifth penalty because he wanted to stand up and be brave with the world watching.

"At the same time, moments afterwards, someone sitting behind a keyboard sends the most disgusting possible things you can say.

"I don’t know these social media platforms can allow this. It’s too easy to send stuff like this and something needs to be done as well as people completely changing their mindsets.

"I’m so angry for Tammy and for us as a club. It’s not what we’re about."

Leah, 21, has been with the England star for five years and stayed by his side through loan moves to Bristol City, Swansea and Aston Villa.

The pair regularly pose together in photos and Leah has said in the past she is "super proud" of what her man has accomplished.

'DISGUSTING AND ABHORRENT'

Manchester United stars Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard have also slammed those posting racist remarks.

Lingard wrote alongside a photo of himself and Abraham laughing in England training: "Head up brother stand strong and proud."

And Rashford posted in response to a tweet highlighting Abraham's racist abuse: "Keep your head held high @tammyabraham we've all had them saved, that's football. We should be celebrating young English talent not this..."

A Chelsea spokesman said the messages sent to Abraham were "abhorrent" and the club "disgusted".

And a Twitter spokesperson said: "We continue to take action on any account that violates the Twitter Rules.

"We welcome people to freely express themselves on our service, however, as outlined in our Hateful Conduct Policy, users cannot promote violence against, threaten or harass other people on the basis of race, ethnicity or other protected groups.

"We remain deeply committed to improving the health of the conversation on the service and in that respect we continue to prioritise the safety of our users."

A Kick It Out statement condemned the abuse and said: "We send our support to Tammy and reiterate our call for Twitter and other social media companies to clamp down on this level of abuse.

"This is a call to action - we want to know what they are going to do to tackle this insidious problem."
