Colombian footballer makes 'slant eyes' gesture towards South Korean players during friendly
Colombian footballer Edwin Cardona is at the centre of a race row after seemingly making a "slant eyes" gesture to South Korean players during an worldwide game.
Colombian footballer Edwin Cardona has apologised after he was accused of making a racist gesture during a friendly global against South Korea.
South Korea ultimately won the game 2-1.
The incident took place early in the second half during an altercation between a number of players after Kim Jin-su and James Rodriguez clashed. At this point, Cardona, who had been on the bench up until this point, looked directly at Ki and used his fingers to pull back his eyes and make a racist gesture.
Colombia coach Jose Pekerman refused to comment on what happened, insisting he did not witness the incident.
Look for Bright Planets Monday Morning
About an hour before sunrise on Monday morning, Venus and Jupiter will rise as one, in a spectacle that will amaze stargazers. Observers will have to have an uninterrupted view to the south-east as the planets will be very low in the sky.
"I didn't see that gesture and I can not comment on that", Pekerman stated.
"It was a physical game. I can't comment further on an incident that I didn't see with my own eyes".
"I didn't mean to disrespect anyone, a country or a race, but if anyone felt offended, or interpreted it in that way, I am sorry", Cardona said in a video posted on the Colombian national team's official Twitter account.
"But racist behaviour is absolutely unacceptable". Things happen during a game like this. "Colombia have world-class players, and I was extremely disappointed to see such action".
Colombia heads to China for another World Cup warm-up match on Tuesday, while South Korea hosts Serbia.
