German journalist Rafael Honigstein to return on BT Sport

German journalist Rafael Honigstein reveals that he will return to BT Sport as a pundit after being told to leave set this weekend after he made a rude gesture.

German journalist Rafael Honigstein has revealed that he will return to work on BT Sport after being asked to leave a set this weekend.

Honigstein made a rude gesture on 'Sunday Night Football' when he thought that they were still rehearsing and was told to leave the set.

He has now said that he has donated his appearance fee to charity and will return next Sunday.

"Once again, sincere apologies. I have donated the fee for the show to the @btsport charity The Supporters Club. I'm back next Sunday," tweeted the football writer.

It was the second similar problem for the new broadcaster this weekend after David Ginola made the same gesture live on Saturday.
