Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin has apologised for the rude celebration following his touchdown in the Super Bowl.
The 27-year-old squatted over the ball and imitated sitting on a toilet after putting his team into a 24-14 lead against the New England Patriots in an apparent taunt against cornerback Darrelle Revis.
Baldwin was penalised for the incident with a 15-yard infraction and was also fined $11,025 (£7,180) after the Seahawks' loss at the University of Phoenix Stadium.
"I do regret the fact that it cost my team 15 yards, and to the fans, ultimately I apologise to anybody I offended in any way," Baldwin told ESPN.
"It wasn't about that. I just think it was a competitive situation. So to all the 12s, all the fans, that's not what it's about. So I apologise to anyone if I offended you.
"In that moment, it was just a reaction. So obviously if I could go back, I would take it back."
The touchdown grab was Baldwin's only reception in the Super Bowl.
