Greek Premier Tsipras Supports Antetokounmpo in Racism Row



    The picture was uploaded by Tsipras on his personal Instagram account

    Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras today posted a picture of himself on Instagram wearing Greece’s national basketball team T-shirt, with Thanasis Antetokounmpo’s name written on the back.

    Tsipras wrote ”respect and pride for those who were born and raised in Greece and made the country their own home. No tolerance for hatred and racism”.

    The Greek premier uploaded the photo after a firestorm caused by the ugly, racist comments of a Greek television sports commentator directed at Giannis Antetokounmpo’s brother, Thanasis.
