    Still has a bit of a veiled dig in his apology, doesn't he?

    "it was not only insulting and demeaning to a decent man and sporting professional in Bilal Shafayat, and anyone else who faces ridicule on the basis of their appearance"

    Suggesting that he thinks Shafayat's appearance is the type likely to provoke ridicule.

    &, ftr, the "fat pom" is actually a crim himself.

    Surely Shafayat's appearance has provoked ridicule, though.
    Or something.

    Good for the player to donate the damages to a charity.

    What a complete pillock. His attempt at an "explanation" was nonsense too.
