The Daily Star has issued a public apology to Eidur Gudjohnsen after previously publishing a story that the striker had made an Hitler salute.
Gudjohnsen who spent the second half of last season on loan at Tottenham acted furiously to the report and has now received an apology.
A statement released by the Daily Star said: “On 4 May we published a story about Premiership footballer Eidur Gudjohnsen in which we questioned whether he was making a Nazi salute after he was photographed appearing to do so in a bar the previous evening.
“Mr Gudjognsen tells us, and we accept, that he was in fact acting out a rather rude joke in the company of his friends and that in making the gesture he intended no Nazi connotation whatsoever.Â
“We are happy to set the record straight.”
