Lineker apologises for 'eating grass' comment aimed at Muslim players' prayer celebration

The former England star was fronting Al Jazeera's coverage of the 1-1 draw between Montpellier and Schalke when he made the comment about Karim Ait-Fana and Younes Belhanda.

The story is too old to be commented.

Not aware of their religion? With their names, it's kinda obvious

Keep sport secular. This is how it transcends cultures.

That was just ridiculous, He must have seen enough players doing that throughout his life to know that what those 2 players were doing.

Even the Apology seems half hearted.

Not a sincere apology, seems he was forced to do it.
