The Sun has taken offline Saturday’s front-page story alleging football pundit Gary Lineker was involved in a tax-avoidance scheme after legal action.
The paper has received a legal letter from Lineker over the front-page story. Mail Online has also taken down a story which followed up The Sun piece and repeated the same allegations.
The Sun story, which Lineker denies, said: "Gary Lineker has been clobbered with a £1.3million bill after investing in controversial tax-break schemes."
Lineker said on Twitter: “The Sun has done another truth avoidance piece on its front page. I look forward to the tiny apology on page 47 in a few weeks time.”
He added later: “Right, lawyer’s on the case. Nothing more from me until the apology.”
