He has now been called upon to apologise for his actions, with the picture being very poorly received on social media. The Wales international has since removed the image, but has refused to apologise for it; defending his actions by saying Bony had no problem with it.

The 23-year-old appears simply to be ignorant rather than racist, and is unaware of the controversy surrounding the issue.

Williams has been involved in anti-racism campaigns before with the Wales Rugby Team, and with the Show Racism the Red Card campaign in particular.
