LONDON — British police have arrested a 15-year-old boy for a racist tweet aimed at Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck.

The unnamed boy was held and questioned on suspicion of racial abuse following the posting of a message on Twitter after Welbeck scored the winner against Manchester United last week in the FA Cup.

Wiltshire Police in southwest England say the boy has been released on bail until April 13, adding "the investigation is ongoing."

Welbeck spent six seasons at United after coming through the club's youth system before being sold to Arsenal last year.
