Speaking live on air, Belgacom TV's Stéphane Pauwels claimed that Gnohéré, commonly known as Bison, was "fat as a pig," and that "He is 15 kilograms too heavy and going nowhere."

The 25-year-old wasn't best pleased with the comments and decided to take legal action against Pauwels and also sought a public apology.

Gnohéré, though, would drop all the charges if Pauwels agreed to make a charitable donation.

Pauwels has since responded on Twitter, saying: "Harsh, yes, that's football. OK, I should have said 'a few too many kilos'. My apologies to Bison."

Whether or not Pauwels has made the charitable donation is still unclear.
