Ard posts official apology

2011-08-25 13:35
Cape Town - Ard Matthews has posted an official statement of apology on his website.

Matthews caused a national furore when he bungled the national anthem on television at the announcement of the Bok team to contest the World Cup.

In a lengthy post, he addresses the nation, the "haters", the South african Rugbu Union (SARU) and the Springboks, amongst others.

"To the haters: I get it. I would be mad too, though not quite as murderous as some have expressed, but, I get it, you're angry and rightfully so. I am truly sorry. It was a genuine, nightmare of a mistake.

"The SARU: To think that I have not only been likened to but may have even surpassed the last embarrassment you had to endure makes me sick to the stomach and words will never express my shame. For this, I apologise.

"To SuperSport: You trusted me to handle this task on live television and, for the first time in my life, I froze and completely messed it up at the expense of your stations credibility. Thank you for allowing me to say sorry in person, on film this morning."

Matthews vows to go forward and continue to sing the anthem correctly whenever opportunity arises.
