Dele Alli has tendered an apology for posting a video on Snapchat where he joked about the coronavirus outbreak and appeared to be mocking an Asian man.

The midfielder who plays for England and Tottenham, quickly deleted his video on Saturday, and on Sunday expressed his regret via a video on Chinese social media platform Weibo.

Alli in his apology, admitted he had let himself and Spurs down.

“Hi guys, it’s Dele; I just wanted to apologise on my behalf for the video I posted on Snapchat yesterday,” the 23-year-old said.

“It wasn’t funny and I realised that immediately and took it down. I let myself down and the club.

“I don’t want you to have that impression of me because it wasn’t funny and I realised that straight away and took it down.

“It isn’t something that should be joked about. I’m sending all my love and all my thoughts and prayers to everyone in China.”

Tottenham who are currently on their Premier League winter break, will have their next fixture a trip to Aston Villa on Sunday, February 16.
