Concerned that other people might fall victim to an attack, Young has appealed for London mayor Sadiq Khan to help him identify the driver responsible.

He tweeted: "TfL doing everything they can but I am appealing to @TfL @SadiqKhan to help me find the driver to ensure he doesn't abuse others. PLEASE DM me."

Bus drivers are not directly employed by TfL, but by private companies who win contracts to run the services.

In a statement, TfL's director of enforcement Steve Burton said: "We're very sorry to hear of Will Young's experience, and are looking into it urgently. Any form of hate crime is completely unacceptable and will not be tolerated.

"Everyone has the right to travel without fear of abuse or intimidation and if anyone witnesses or is victim to hate crime they should report it immediately."
