'Business as usual' following Willemse walk-out says SuperSport
SuperSport has confirmed that it will be 'business as usual' at the sports channel this weekend.
It follows the live walk-out by presenter and former rugby star Ashswin Willemse on Saturday night.
He left the set after accusing fellow presenters Nick Mallett and Naas Botha of 'patronizing' him.
The disagreement led to all three men attending a meeting at MultiChoice HQ on Monday, but it's claimed there was no accusation of racism.
