Sir Alan Sugar has sparked outrage after he posted an allegedly racist tweet about the Senegal World Cup team this morning.
Posting on Twitter, the businessman wrote: ‘I recognise some of these guys from the beach in Marbella. Multi tasking resourceful chaps.’
Alongside his caption, he shared a picture of sunglasses and handbags on sale on what appears to be a beachfront.
To make it worse, the entrepreneur, who is the 95th richest person in the UK, responded to Twitter users asking what was wrong with his tweet.


Fans in Nizhny Novgorod in western Russia have been basking in sunshine on the banks of the Volga river since the World Cup began.
But the lovely weather was put on ice today when the heavens opened and a thunderstorm flooded the medieval city.

It only took half an hour for the heavy rain to quickly build up rivers of water, bringing traffic to a standstill and stranding motorists.
But one man, dressed in a smart shirt and tie, leapt into action to rescue two women from their cars.
Pictures show him wading in the waist-high water, dragging them out of their car windows one by one, and carrying them to safety.

Due to the presence of a less-than-perfect drainage system, the water quickly rose to dangerous levels.
While the flooding briefly dampened spirits at a hilltop fan zone, the sun soon came out again, calm returned, and locals simply shook their heads.
‘It’s not the first time – we’re used to it,’ said one shopkeeper, watching motorists open their bonnets to let their engines dry out.

A 20-year-old man shocked his family after he apparently walked into his own wake.
Juan Ramon Alfonso Penayo’s relatives had been mourning his death at his home when he reportedly rocked up to the gathering.
His family had thought he’d been killed in a gangland shooting in the village of Santa Teresa, Amambay, in Paraguay.

They even identified his burned remains and buried them, according to perfil.com
But Penayo was alive and had just not bothered to tell them where he was for a week.
Organised crime specialist Candido Figueredo told local media Penayo left his home last Thursday and had not come back.


Pic shows: The funeral; A young man gave his grieving family the shock of their lives when he suddenly walked into the wake they were holding in his honour. The incident occurred in the village of Santa Teresa in the eastern Paraguayan department of Amambay. Twenty-year-old Juan Ramon Alfonso Penayo returned home after he had last been seen several days earlier, and found his family and friends mourning his death. Police had earlier discovered the gruesome remains of a burned body that could not be identified, and family members believed it was Penayo. As drug gangs operate in the area, they feared that he had become embroiled in trouble and met an untimely end. Organised crime specialist Candido Figueredo told local media that Penayo left his home on Thursday last week and had not come back. When police found the unidentifiable burned body, it was concluded that it was Penayo and his family organised the funeral and buried the remains. However, they were stunned to see him casually walk into the house in the middle of the wake they were holding for him. Areas of northern Paraguay???s Amambay Department, which borders the Midwestern state of Mato Grosso do Sul in Brazil, are hotly contested between rival drug organisations, according to official sources. Reports suggest that there is little border control in the region, making it attractive territory for traffickers.

We imagine his family were both pleased and annoyed with the young man who just casually walked back into his house while his family were in tears.
Penayo’s couldn’t be blamed for thinking he was dead considering areas in Amambay, which borders the Midwestern state of Mato Grosso do Sul in Brazil, are hotly contested between rival drug organisations.
Traffickers also operate in the region, which make things even worse.
It has not been confirmed who the person Penayo’s family buried was.

Five injured after gunman opens fire on crowd celebrating World Cup win in Sweden


Five people were injured after a gunman opened fire on a crowd celebrating Sweden’s World Cup win against Korea on Monday evening.
The man reportedly fired an automatic weapon at the crowd, who were celebrating Sweden’s 1-0 victory against Korea, at about 6.15pm.
Witnesses reported hearing around 12 to 15 shots fired near a police station in Drottninggatan, near Malmö.
Jonatan Burhoff told Aftonbladet he saw wounded people being carried to private cars that drove off ‘as fast as possible’.
The injured were taken to hospital following the attack and their condition remains unknown.

Fredrik Bratt, a police spokesman, said the incident is not thought to be terrorism-related and added: ‘It is probably a shooting between criminal individuals’.

Heart-breaking images of little girl ‘beaten by father’ and left chained to toilet 
These heart-breaking images show a four-year-old girl who has been so badly beaten by her father than she can barely open her eyes.
The youngster was also chained up in a toilet and forced to do laundry in a tragic case that has been likened to the story of Cinderella.
The little girl was found in near darkness with both hands inside a plastic wash basin, scrubbing her father’s clothes.

Pics shows: The girl found locked inside a toilet forced to do laundry; A four-year-old girl beaten so badly she could barely open her eyes has been rescued from her father who chained her up in a toilet to do laundry like Cinderella.

Trump's administration uses the Bible to justify taking 2,000 children away from families


Nearly 2,000 children have been separated from their families under a controversial immigration crackdown.
Within the last six weeks 1,995 minors have been removed including breastfeeding infants and other young babies.
The new figures were announced just days after the Trump administration used quotes from the Bible to justify taking the youngsters.
Donald Trump’s administration is pursuing a controversial ‘zero-tolerance’ policy for anyone caught entering the US illegally.
Between April 19 and May 31, 1,940 adults had their children removed while they awaited prosecution.
In many circumstances, the adults have been told their children were being taken to be bathed or cleaned up but then the adults don’t see them again.
Nearly 2,000 children have now been separated from their families under controversial anti-immigration policy.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions cited a passage in the Bible to justify the move.
‘I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13 to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained them for the purpose of order.’
He added: ‘Orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves and protect the weak and lawful.’
Trump’s press secretary Sarah Sanders was pressed about where in the Bible it states it is morally acceptable to take children from their mothers.
She replied she wasn’t aware of the full context of the quote from Sessions but ‘I can say that it is very biblical to enforce the law. That is repeated throughout the Bible.’
Once taken from their families, the children become the charges of the Health and Human Services’ Administration for Children and Families or specifically, the Office of Refugee Resettlement.
Trump’s administration say they want to reunite the families as much as possible after the court proceedings however it puts the responsibility largely on the parents to locate their children and attempt to get them returned.
The US Government has come under fire for its treatment of the families who are coming across the US-Mexico border.
Yesterday Trump continued to blame the opposition Democrats for the law that is separating parents from their children.
He said: ‘I hate to see separation of parents and children. I hate the children being taken away. The Democrats have to change their law.’
However there is no actual law that mandates the removal of children from adults awaiting prosecution.
The adoption of the ‘zero tolerance’ policy is behind the separation of families.
Until it was enacted in April, people detained for immigration offences were referred for civil deportation proceedings and kept together. Now the parents are charged and processed under the criminal system which means children can be removed.

Disturbing footage appears to show a bear forced to play the vuvuzela for World Cup fans as it is driven around the streets of Moscow.
The animal is seen sitting up in the back of a jeep grasping the horn, which became famous in the South African World Cup eight years ago.
It is thought to have been filmed after Russia’s opening match, when they won against Saudi Arabia 5-0.
