Newspapers apologise for Capello beach shots

Fabio Capello has not only knocked England's football players in line he has also made an impressive start on an even tougher challenge - getting the nation's tabloid press to dance to his tune.

The Italian took exception to being photographed with his wife on a beach holiday earlier this month but, despite complaining to newspaper editors at the time, pictures subsequently appeared in the News of the World and Daily Mail.

After the FA took up the issue with the Press Complaints Commission (PCC) both newspapers accepted that "internal procedures had failed" and that the pictures were published in error, the FA said on its website.

They have apologised to Capello, given undertakings for the future, and, at the request of the England boss, made substantial donations to the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation.
