FIFA President Sepp Blatter has issued a public apology for his recent comments on racism in football.

The 75-year-old had said in interviews earlier this week that any racial incidents could be settled by a handshake at the end of a match.

His initial comments came after Liverpool striker Luis Suarez was charged by the English Football Association in relation to the accusations of racism from Manchester United defender Patrice Evra on October 15.

Blatter, who was re-elected to a four-year term in June, insisted he will not resign as FIFA president.
