If you’re a professional athlete then you should know full well that fans are going to discuss your performances online, be it on forums or on social media. If you can’t take that in your stride then either get a new job or don’t look on the fans forum. As for social media, have a private account so that only the people you choose to see your content can see it. Even to the point of using a different username/handle so that you can’t be found by the few fans who would be stupid enough to @ you in their criticisms. If you google or search for yourself on social networks then do so in the knowledge that you might find criticism and vitriolic content. Or just don’t do it, it’s not worth it for an ego boost.

If you don’t want to be criticised then don’t choose a life as a professional sportsperson.

The line between criticism and abuse isn’t that thin at all. Calling someone a shit footballer is criticism, albeit not constructive, calling someone a shit person (because of what they do on the football pitch and for no other reason) is abuse.
