Fraser apologises for ‘racist’ comments

Australian sporting icon Dawn Fraser has apologised “unreservedly” for offending Nick Kyrgios and his family with comments that they had described as nasty and racist.

Fraser faced a storm of criticism on Tuesday after suggesting Kyrgios and fellow tennis star Bernard Tomic should set a better example or go back to where their parents came from.

She later issued a statement apologising.

“I want to unreservedly apologise for any comments that I made this morning which may have caused offence to my fellow Australians including Nick and his family,” she said.
