Pundit Kicked off BT Sport After Repeating David Ginola's Offensive Gesture
It has not been a great weekend for BT Sport.
On Saturday, the television channel was forced to apologise after pundit David Ginola was shown on camera making an offensive gesture toward presenter Jake Humphrey after Humphrey made a sly dig at the former Newcastle midfielder about his fashion sense.
On Sunday, however, the channel had to go one further, asking German football journalist Raphael Honigstein to leave the set after he repeated Ginola's gesture toward James Richardson following a similar exchange.
Honigstein, who was given the opportunity to apologise for his gaffe and then continued to give his views on the round-up show Sunday Night Football, was nowhere to be seen following a subsequent commercial break.
On Twitter, the German appeared to suggest that he thought they were still in rehearsals when he made the gesture:

It remains to be seen if Honigstein, who has been a regular guest on BT's variety of European football shows since the channel's launch, will return to our television sets after this incident or if BT will take a hard line following a difficult weekend.
