Liam Williams, Wales Rugby International, Apologises For 'Blacking Up' As Wilfried Bony

A Wales rugby international has apologised for 'blacking-up' as a footballer for a fancy dress party.

Liam Williams dressed as Swansea City's Wilfried Bony before posting a picture on Twitter.

The image drew criticism for many quarters including Show Racism The Red Card.

Williams subsequently deleted the picture and apologised.
