ESPN reporter apologises to Harry Kane for insulting comments regarding England captain’s speech in broadcasting error

Caught out

ESPN reporter Mark Ogden has publicly apologised to Harry Kane after insulting comments were made by the journalist and two fellow presenters including Alexis Nunes.

In a conversation broadcast in error, Ogden, Nunes and a third unknown off-screen presenter made comments about the England captain. This was in reaction to Kane entering into the top 10 Premier League goalscorers after his penalty against Brighton.

The conversation appears to begin with Ogden speaking about Kane before interrupting himself. Saying, “Harry Kane, you know he is probably the most…” before waving his hand to the camera.

Fellow presenter Nunes then responds with, “He’s like ‘Do I have to talk about this mofo?”

“It’s just really boring, isn’t it?” replies Ogden.

Then the unknown presenter in the studio chips in with, “I hate hearing him speak. He’s got a weird voice.” To which Ogden jokingly responds, “Shall I do it in the style of Harry Kane?”

The third presenter says, “That’s what stands out about him.”

For Nunes to conclude the exchange by saying, “Yeah, his voice. Literally. For someone who speaks like that, thank God he plays football.”

The clip was broadcast assumingly by accident and immediately picked up by several accounts on social media who have since tweeted the video, being seen by hundreds of thousands of people.

Ogden apologises

Since, Mark Ogden has taken to Twitter to publicly apologise for his comments. The ESPN reporter tweeted Kane and Tottenham Hotspur directly, also mentioning they have reached out to the club to ‘sincerely apologise.

The statement of Ogden’s Twitter read, “An inappropriate conversation with our producer was accidentally posted publicly for a short time before being taken down. Our comments were clearly disrespectful and regrettable. We have the utmost respect for @HKane, a consummate professional and role model to youngsters.”

“We have contacted Tottenham Hotspur to sincerely apologise directly to @SpursOfficial and to Harry, in addition to the club’s supporters and to the ESPN FC audience.
