(CNN)Soccer star Dele Alli has apologized for a video he posted on Snapchat about the coronavirus outbreak.

The Tottenham Hotspur midfielder deleted the video he posted on Saturday in which he filmed himself wearing a face mask and appeared to mock an Asian man, according to PA Media.

Alli issued an apology for his video.

“I let myself down and the club. I don’t want you guys to have that impression of me because it wasn’t funny and I realized that straight away and took it down.

“It isn’t something that should be joked about. I’m sending all my love and all my thoughts and prayers with everyone in China.”
