Indigenous player Goodes plays on after race controversy

0

SYDNEY: One of Australia’s highest profile indigenous athletes on Tuesday said he hopes to put a racism controversy behind him in announcing his return to Australian Rules football after being humbled by an outpouring of support. Adam Goodes had been on indefinite leave after persistent jeering of him this season recently reached a climax, which was condemned by some as racist. There were fears the 35-year-old star, a former Australian of the Year, may call it quits but he turned up for training with the Sydney Swans Tuesday after missing a weekend fixture.
