Agency apologise for their 'disturbing' advert

Young & Rubicam, the advertising company behind a controversial Argentinian television advert showing an Olympic hopeful training on a British war memorial in the Falklands, has released a statement apologising for the "pain" the advert has caused.

The advert features Fernando Zylberberg from Argentina's men's hockey team on a training run past several landmarks on the islands. He is seen running up the steps of a British war memorial, and the advert ends with text saying: "To compete on English soil, we train on Argentine soil."
