However, Sania, who is no stranger to controversies extended her supoort to Ozil on Social media.

“This is the saddest thing to read as a an athlete, and more importantly as a human being.. you are right bout one thing @MesutOzil1088 racism should not and will not be accepted under any circumstance.. sad if all this is true..,” she wrote on the social networking side on Monday.
