Lineker accepts Twitter 'troll' apology

Gary Lineker said he has accepted the apology of a Twitter user who taunted his son over his childhood leukaemia.


Hear the twitter troll has said sorry. We accept that apology. I'm sure he will learn from his idiocy. No need for this to go further IMO.

George Lineker was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia in 1992.

The BBC Sport presenter said he did not plan to take any further action over the incident.

Earlier this week a 17-year-old boy was arrested and later issued with a harassment warning after offensive comments were sent to Olympic diver Tom Daley on Twitter.
