AFL Club Apologises After 30 Years



In Aussie Rules, Collingwood Football Club has issued an apology to former St Kilda star Nicky Winmar 30 years after the First Nations footballer was racially abused by spectators during an AFL game.

Winmar and teammate Gilbert McAdam were subjected to racial abuse while warming up before Collingwood’s game against St Kilda at Victoria Park on 17 April 1993.

During the game, Winmar famously lifted his jumper and pointed at his skin, resulting in one of the sport’s most iconic photos.
