Russia: Ex-pro Collymore reacts to UK Apprentice host's 'racist' tweet

RT host and former English footballer Stan Collymore responded to a tweet from UK Apprentice host Lord Alan Sugar which compared the Senegal football team to 'beach sellers in Marbella', in Moscow on Wednesday. Collymore said that he was «disgusted, upset, but not surprised» by the tweet itself and the reaction to it in the UK. He went on to say that Britons «need to look a lot closer to... Еще home,» adding «this is the very apex, let's not forget, of British society, this is a lord.» «Do you think allying elite level athletes from an African country to beach sellers is anything other than racism?» Collymore added. The former England striker also challenged the BBC to sack the Apprentice star. Lord Sugar posted a controversial tweet comparing the Senegal national football team to immigrant street-salesmen on Wednesday. The tweet showed a photoshopped image of the team standing over a row of sunglasses and handbags along with the caption: «I recognise some of these guys from the beach in Marbella. Multi-tasking resourceful chaps.» Sugar quickly deleted the post and issued a public apology.
