  • England star Ben Stokes apologised Friday for his angry exchange with a fan during the fourth and final Test against South Africa but claimed he was the victim of “repeated abuse”
  • Stokes described his reaction at the Wanderers as “unprofessional”. English cricket chiefs, however, claimed staff and players were also subjected to “personal abuse during and after the day’s play”
  • Stokes, the outstanding player in a series which England lead 2-1, stopped briefly as he left the field after being dismissed for just two and appeared to challenge a spectator, who evidently insulted him. “Come say that to me outside the ground, you f****** four-eyed c***,” Stokes said, according to television footage captured as he left the field and started to climb the steps leading to the dressing room
