Star 'sets record straight' on Nazi salute

A clarification from the Daily Star about footballer Eidur Gudjohnsen:

On 4 May we published a story about Premiership footballer Eidur Gudjohnsen in which we questioned whether he was making a Nazi salute after he was photographed appearing to do so in a bar the previous evening.

Mr Gudjognsen tells us, and we accept, that he was in fact acting out a rather rude joke in the company of his friends and that in making the gesture he intended no Nazi connotation whatsoever.

We are happy to set the record straight.

Shame they couldn't spell his name correctly for two sentences running, however.

A statement from Gudjohnsen about the original article is on the Tottenham Hotspur website.
