The Swiss women's football boss Tatjana Haenni has published a hate letter against women in football addressed to her.

The top official of the Swiss Football Association (SFV) shared the misogynist and homophobic letter on Twitter.

"By publishing this letter, I wanted to further sensitize the public and show that respect and tolerance are still too often trampled on," wrote the 55-year-old on Friday in a statement at the request of the German Press Agency.

The SFV keeps receiving letters in which national players are humiliated and insulted.

"These statements are disrespectful, mean and hurtful," wrote Haenni.

The former international, coach and Fifa official has long campaigned for women in football.

Before the European Championships in England, the equality of bonuses for Swiss national players was announced.
