Biased Chinese commentator apologises

LONDON - China Central Television commentator Huang Jianxiang, who I blogged about yesterday following his over-enthusiastic commentary on Italy's last-minute defeat of Australia, has apologised.
The Associated Press reported the following statement posted on CCTV's website: "In the last minutes of the Italy-Australia game, I added too much personal emotion to my comments. What I said led to the viewers' displeasure, and they have expressed their views and criticisms, and I sincerely apologise."
Anyway, you can re-live every second of his fantastically biased five-minute rant, I mean commentary, here. (Sorry if this is stating the obvious, but it's in Chinese..).
