Swiss expel Palermo defender Michel Morganella from Olympics

Switzerland have expelled Palermo defender Michel Morganella from their Olympics squad for offensive tweets.

Morganella was part of the Swiss team that was defeated by South Korea 2-1 on Sunday.

After the game he posted on Twitter: "I am going to batter the Koreans, burn them all... bunch of 'trisos'."

Trisos is a French slang word for people with Down's Syndrome.

Swiss newspaper Le Matin published the tweets from the players account but the tweets have since been deleted following the furore.
