Sky Sports apologise for Terry Venables homophobic 'joke'

Sky Sports apologise for Terry Venables's homophobic 'joke', which he said live on air during Goals on Sunday.

Sky Sports were forced to apologise after former England manager Terry Venables appeared to make a homophobic 'joke' while on air at the weekend.

The 71-year-old, who was a guest on Sky's Goals on Sunday show, told a story about how he and then-Nottingham Forest manager Brian Clough held hands while walking out onto the Wembley pitch in the 1991 FA Cup final.

He said: "As I come out he grips my right hand with his left hand and I'm clamped, I'm clamped."

Venables said that the two looked like a "pair of woofers", which prompted presenter Ben Shephard, who was co-hosting with Chris Kamara, to apologise for any offence caused.
