Ireland: Gaelic footballer urges followers to "punch a Jew"

A GAA star is facing a criminal investigation after sending a Tweet urging people to "punch a Jew". 
Former Tyrone player Tommy McGuigan has apologised for the Tweet, but the PSNI has confirmed it is investigating the comment as a potential hate crime. 
The All-Ireland winner had tweeted: "If you are lucky enough to know or work with a Jew, punch him right on the nose tomorrow." 
"I apologise for any offence caused," said the 29-year-old. He said he had been watching news coverage of the death and destruction in Gaza when he sent the Tweet.
