A Serbian volleyball player has apologised to the Thai team for making an alleged racist gesture during a game in the Nations League, hosted by Italy yesterday (Tuesday).

The player, Sanja Djurdjevic, pulled the corners of her eyes back, to narrow them into an ‘oriental’ shape, a gesture not appreciated by native Asians. Sanja has posted on Instagram, saying she is aware of her mistake and that she apologised after the game to the Thai team, who lost to the Serbians 3-0.
