Jadon Sancho reveals 'Justice for George Floyd' protest after scoring hat-trick for Dortmund

England winger Jadon Sancho reveals "Justice for George Floyd" shirt when he was celebrating his first goal for Borussia Dortmund against Paderborn on Sunday.

George Floyd died on Monday after he was arrested and pinned to the ground by a white police officer, who knelt on Floyd's neck for nearly nine minutes.

He was heard pleading he couldn't breath before giving up ghost in the viral video shared online.

Floyd's death has led to widespread protests across the United States and the world.

And we've seen players honouring Floyd during the Bundesliga over the weekend.

On Saturday, Schalke's Weston McKennie wore a 'Justice for George' armband against Werder Bremen.

Earlier on Sunday, Borussia Monchengladbach's striker, Thuram scored twice and took to his knee as part of the demonstrations in a tribute to the Black Lives Matter movement and his act was followed by Sancho.

Monchengladbach's coach, Marco Rose, later praised the 22-year-old and said he "set an example".

"Marcus has made the point. He has set an example against racism that we all support," Rose told reporters, per Goal.

It's great to see. These players have huge platforms and are using them to send an extremely important message.

Sancho went on to score a hat-trick as Dortmund cruised to a 6-1 win against Paderborn.

The win leaves Borussia Dortmund seven points behind Bayern Munich at the top of the Bundesliga table.
