Fifa president Sepp Blatter apologises for comments on racism

"I am sorry and I regret that my statements earlier this week have resulted in an unfortunate situation," he said. "I am committed to the fight against racism, have no doubt about that. And I want to make it very clear: I will not stop until we have stamped racism out of football." The apology was read out by Tokyo Sexwale, a black Fifa official and South African government minister seen with Blatter in a photo that was circulated on Wednesday in what some saw a cynical ploy to burnish Blatter's anti-racism credentials.
