Kevin-Prince Boateng invited by UN



AC Milan midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng has been invited by the United Nations to attend its International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.

Boateng led his teammates off the pitch this month in protest at racial abuse by opposing fans during a friendly match against fourth-tier Italian club Pro Patria.

The U.N. event, which takes place in Geneva on March 21, has been running since 1966 and this year's focus is on racism in sport.

Milan announced the news on its website on Wednesday.
