Model Anara Atanes has issued an apology to the whole of the French nation this week after she launched a foul-mouthed rant on Twitter.
Atanes was furious when her other half Samir Nasri was left out of the France World Cup squad by coach Didier Deschamps.
Atanes grabbed the headlines in the sporting pages when she took to Twitter to denounce Deschamps’ rejection of her man.
See for yourself in the tweet below.
Fuck france and fuck deschamps! What a shit manager!

Atanes then went on to slam France as "a nation of racists" in a further tweet which appears to have since been deleted.
And on Wednesday Atanes, was clearly showing some remorse and perhaps regret for blasting a whole nation.
I apologize if i offended anyone from france, My tweets were not aimed at the nation as a whole.

Although some did approve.

For his part Nasri took his rejection in a slightly more dignified manner.
"I respect his choice, which hasn't been a surprise for me," Nasri told reporters in Abu Dhabi, where Manchester City are celebrating their English Premier League title.
Deschamps on Tuesday unveiled his 23-man squad for the World Cup as well as naming seven reserves, but there was no place for the 26-year-old Nasri.
"If he thinks my behaviour is bad, that's his business. Me, I play for my team (Manchester City) and I have no problem," said Nasri, who has 41 caps for his country.
