In a statement on social media, he wrote: "There were some heated words yesterday in the emotions of the game for which I apologise - especially to the people from North Macedonia and Albania.

"I would like to say one thing very clearly. I AM NOT A RACIST! I have friends in almost every country and I stand for diversity. Everyone who knows me is aware of that."

Austria face the Netherlands next before closing the group stage against Ukraine next Monday.
