Christine Frampton, the wife of Belfast boxer Carl Frampton, has called out sick Facebook trolls who threatened to kill her family.

Last night she took to Twitter to share the message she received on Facebook from trolls claiming to be from the UVF.

The message read: 'You and your kid's (sic) and Carl are getting murdered by the U.V.F so f***ing watch!'

However, Christine decided to post the message on her Twitter account in order to highlight the abuse that she has to put up with.

She also noted how the Facebook account was deleted soon after she received the message, writing: 'Lovely message I got on Facebook. How do I find out who this person is because the profile seems to have disappeared?'

Christine immediately began to receive messages of support from her 12,000 followers.
