AC Milan's Kevin-Prince Boateng invited to United Nations anti-racism event

Ghanaian international Kevin-Prince Boateng has been invited to the United Nations International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination which will be held in March later year.
The 25-year-old walked off the pitch during a match at lower division side Pro Patria after he was subjected to racial abuse from home fans, Boateng’s team-mates followed and the match was abandoned.
AC Milan escaped punishment on Tuesday from Series A disciplinary commission; however, they were told that it was wrong to abandon a friendly despite Boeteng being subjected to racist chants.The commissioner ruled on Tuesday that his actions broke league rules but would not be punished.

According to Millian:"The event will take place at the National Building in Geneva and will concentrate on racism in sport."
