    This was added at the end of the article:

    "UPDATE: An earlier version of this story contained an allegation by Ben Cohen about Reebok. He has now contacted GSN to apologize and asked to withdraw that remark saying he was mistaken and his earlier claim was untrue. GSN published his previous comment in good faith as it was said in a public meeting but would like to apologize."

    Yeah, Ben made an open apology on Facebook about his statement as well.

    My most sincere apologies to @reebokuk. The claims I made about Gareth Thomas' contract were untrue. I was mistaken and I apologise. Ben
