Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson has apologised "profusely" after a photograph was posted on his Twitter account showing him sleeping next to a piece of paper with an offensive message on it.
The image, which appeared on his online account, followed by 2.8 million people, appeared to have been taken on a plane and showed a piece of paper with the words "gay c***" written on it and an arrow pointing towards Clarkson.
It is not clear who took the photograph, which shows his Top Gear sidekick James May in the background.
Clarkson deleted the image and told his followers: "I have deleted my last tweet and would like to apologise profusely to anyone who I upset while I was asleep."
