Griezmann apologises after posting blackface photo on social media

Antoine Griezmann has seven goals and five assists for Atletico Madrid this season.
Antoine Griezmann apologised for his 'clumsy' social media post on Sunday.

Antoine Griezmann has apologised after sparking a Twitter backlash by posting a picture of himself dressed as a black basketball player.

The Atletico Madrid and France forward's initial tweet, which he has since deleted, captioned "80's Party,'' showed Griezmann in a Harlem Globetrotters-like uniform with heavily darkened skin and an afro-style wig.

After a string of angry responses, Griezmann returned to Twitter to post: "Calm down friends, I'm fan of the Harlem globetrotters and the good times... it's a tribute. ''

More than 20 minutes after that post, he added: "I recognise it is clumsy on my part. If I have hurt anyone, I apologise.''
