Sky Sports anchorman Richard Keys has apologised for his part in the sexism furore that has cost fellow presenter Andy Gray his job.

Keys and Gray were reprimanded by Sky after making disparaging remarks about female assistant referee Sian Massey at the weekend, with Gray sacked on Tuesday after a video clip emerged showing him making inappropriate remarks to another Sky presenter, Charlotte Jackson.

Keys' position is also under pressure and speaking outside his home, he told ITV News: "I'm sorry you've had to wait so long to hear from me. I'm on my way into London now to start apologising to the people that I need to.

"For the immediate, I would just like to say how deeply sorry I am for the part that I have played in causing this furore."
