Former Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler was forced to apologise for making a comment that could be deemed sexist on BBC's Final Score football show.
When discussing the incident, Fowler said: "They were pulling at each other like a pair of girls."
He later apologised on the show by saying: "I'm very sorry. I didn't mean to offend anyone."
Torres, who was later sent off for a second bookable offence, could face a four-game ban for the incident with Vertonghen.
