Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli apologised for a video in which he appeared to mock an Asian man while talking about the coronavirus outbreak.

In a video posted on his Snapchat account, Alli is seen wearing a face mask in an airport lounge with the message: "Corona whattt, please listen with volume."

He then zooms the camera towards a man of Asian appearance before panning to a bottle of antiseptic hand wash with a video caption that read: "This virus gunna have to be quicker than that to catch me."

Alli was forced to remove the post following immediate backlash and later apologised on Chinese social media platform Weibo.

"It wasn't funny. I realised that immediately and took it down," he said. "I let myself down and the club. I don't want you guys to have that impression of me."

The coronavirus outbreak in China has killed over 900 people, with more than 40,000 infected.

Alli has been on holiday during Spurs' winter break.
