Wigan Athletic's chairman has landed himself in fresh controversy after an attempt to apologise for alleged racism ended up with him calling Chinese people "chingalings".

In an interview with the Jewish Chronicle Whelan said "When I was growing up we used to call the Chinese ‘chingalings. We weren’t being disrespected (sic). We used to say, ‘we’re going to eat in chingalings’."

OK Dave.
