Removing the word "esports" from misspelled words

Esports is now a huge thing these days, but currently WordPress determines the words "esports" and "Esports" (capitalized when at the beginning of a sentence or in a title) as misspelled words. This should be updated, just like the word "email" has been in times past.

The AP has determined the official spelling of the word now. You can view it here:

Hello @azizpbrimah and welcome to Trac.

Thanks for the suggestion, but WordPress Core has no spelling nor makes any such corrections, excect for the word WordPress itself.

I guess you are using a spelling/proofreading plugin, either in WordPress (maybe Jetpack) or in your browser.
