WWE cuts ties with Hulk Hogan amid 'racial slurs' report

World wrestling body WWE has severed ties with Hulk Hogan, one of the sport's biggest stars.
The company has deleted most references to Hogan on its website and issued a statement saying it had terminated its contract with arguably the best-known US wrestler.
The WWE did not give a reason, but issued a statement saying it is "committed to embracing and celebrating individuals from all backgrounds as demonstrated by the diversity of our employees, performers and fans worldwide".
The move comes amid a joint report from RadarOnline.com and The National Enquirer that Hogan used racial slurs in a conversation caught on a sex tape he is fighting in court to keep private.
In a statement to People magazine, Hogan apologised for using "offensive language".
