British BBC commentator fired over racist comment

Carol Thatcher will no longer work on The One Show after being reported for making an off-air remark, the BBC has announced.

The daughter of former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher referred to the black French tennis player Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, as a "golliwog" backstage during filming of the BBC One programme.

However, the 55-year-old will not be banned from the BBC as a whole. The corporation said it had hoped Thatcher would issue an unconditional apology but she had declined to do so.

What if you had a racist friend?
