Leicester forward Jamie Vardy has apologised for a "regrettable error in judgement" and will be investigated by the club over a video showing him using allegedly racist language.

The Sun on Sunday published footage, reportedly taken in the early hours of July 26, that appears to show the England international abusing a fellow gambler in a casino and calling him "Jap" on three occasions.

In a statement released by Leicester to Press Association Sport, the 28-year-old said: "I wholeheartedly apologise for any offence I've caused.

"It was a regrettable error in judgement I take full responsibility for and I accept my behaviour was not up to what's expected of me."
