    “South Koreans are mentally handicapped retards!” Michel Morganella (Swiss) has a Twitter meltdown after losing at the Olympics

    UPDATE: Since publishing this post, Michel Morganella has been kicked out of the Olympics.

    Michel Morganella has had a miserable Monday.

    The Swiss right back was on the losing end of a 2-1 defeat to South Korea at the Olympics on Sunday, and following the loss the Palermo defender had a meltdown on Twitter.

    The 23-year-old felt provoked after receiving a torrent of abuse throughout the match against the Asians.

    Morganella was booed throughout the match after he picked up an “injury” in a phantom challenge with Arsenal forward Park Chu Young.

    After getting riled on the pitch, Morganella let rip on Twitter:

    I want to beat up all South Koreans! Bunch of mentally handicapped retards! (“Je les tous Defonce Coréens, allez vous tous Bruler, bande de trisos!”)

    Unsurprisingly there was a big backlash to Morganella’s comments on the micro-blogging site, with many accusing the footballer of xenophobia and racism.

    After publicly apologising on Twitter for his original comment, the defender has since had his Twitter account suspended. Moreover, calls are growing for the footballer to be kicked out of London 2012.

    I don't have any sympathy for racists period, especially if you're playing on an international stage like the Olympics, where is the graceful sportsmanship when you lose? Hahahaha LOL at you got banned and kicked off your own team, that will teach you a lesson.

    Koreans are known to be cheat cheat cheaters in pretty much everything that you find.

    But I'm sure it doesn't apply to all of them. I don't think they're retarded though all the ones I know are very smart. Otherwise how do you cheat?
