Alan Sugar has defended the tweet and asked people what was wrong with it…
Just been reading the reaction to my funny tweet about the guy on the beach in Marbella . Seems it has been interpreted in the wrong way as offensive by a few people . Frankly I cant see that I think it's funny. But I will pull it down if you insist .

When another user asked him how long it would take for him to be told to apologise, Lord Sugar posted: ‘I can’t see what I have to apologise for. You are OTT. It’s a bloody joke.’
Senegal won with a 2-1 victory over Poland in Moscow yesterday, putting them joint top of Group H alongside Japan.
