'Sorry situation' for Sepp Blatter

Al Jazeera's Lee Wellings reports on racism furore surrounding FIFA president Sepp Blatter and how it refuses to go away

    Following Al Jazeera's interview with FIFA president Sepp Blatter, the most powerful man in football has apologised for his ill-judged comments.

    David Beckham has joined many leading figures in the UK by speaking out against the Swiss president, describing his comments on racism as "appalling". 

    As Blatter is hit by a wave of criticism, South African official Tokyo Sexwale - a man dragged into the saga - has stood up for the president.
