Leicester City FC's Jamie Vardy Sorry After 'Racist' Casino Incident

Leicester City forward Jamie Vardy has apologised for a "regrettable error in judgement" after a video allegedly showed him using racist language.

Vardy will be investigated by the club after the Sun on Sunday published footage which appears to show the England international abusing a man in a casino and calling him "Jap" on three occasions.

The footage was reportedly taken in the early hours of July 26 at a casino in Leicester.

In a statement released by the club to Press Association Sport, the 28-year-old said: "I wholeheartedly apologise for any offence I've caused.

"It was a regrettable error in judgement I take full responsibility for and I accept my behaviour was not up to what's expected of me."
