Former England international and Match of the Day host Gary Lineker has been forced to apologise after describing two Muslim footballers as 'eating grass'.
Lineker, who was commentating on the game for Al Jazeera TV at the time, said: "A terrific effort from Karim Ait-Fana, who scored from just outside the area and then ate grass . . . as you do."
The ex-Tottenham Hotspur star is believed to have angered viewers and later claimed that he was not aware that it was a religious gesture.
