ESPN have issued a statement of apology to Tottenham Hotspur and striker Harry Kane following a video which was released on social media on Sunday.
Leaked video footage came to light which showed ESPN FC’s Alexis Nunes and Mark Ogden starting to discuss Kane’s performance against Brighton and career in general before stopping the conversation, and in between takes they went on discuss the way his voice sounds in an offensive manner, while a producer who was not shown on camera also chipped in with insults aimed at the Tottenham forward.
The US broadcasting giant have also released a statement in which they described the comments as unacceptable whilst also insisting that the matter is now being dealt with internally with those who were involved in the offensive video.
Kane had earlier helped Spurs to a 2-1 victory against Brighton and it is not the first time in which he has experienced being mocked on social media after Liverpool midfielder Harvey Elliott directed insults at the England skipper last year (talkSPORT).
