Wales captain Ashley Williams has issued an apology after a video emerged of the defender mocking Cardiff City fans while on international duty. 

The 34-year-old appeared to call fans of the Bluebirds 'mugs' for doing the 'Ayatollah' gesture while walking through the corridor at the Cardiff City Stadium, before Wales' Nations League defeat to Denmark. 

Despite claiming the incident was 'banter', Williams, who now plays for Stoke City after making over 350 appearances for Swansea City earlier in his career, has apologised for the incident to those that were offended.

"I think it's obviously disappointing but it was not meant how it came out at all," Williams said, as quoted by BBC Sport.
