Stories of child abuse: ‘Not the only one’
The emails detailed abuse – often by trusted authority figures – not only in football, but in other sports including tennis, diving and golf.
The NSPCC said it had received a “small number” of calls relating to abuse in other sports and the National Police Chiefs’ Council says it has received “very few”.
Both say the vast majority of calls they have received since the football abuse story was first reported relate to football.

They are protected by New York State laws.
