Ben Youngs has been branded as “childish” after storming out of a TV interview after just 10 seconds.
England scrum-half Young was being quizzed by Sky Sports’ Gail Davis after the Red Rose had suffered a 23-12 defeat to South Africa in Bloemfontein.

Starting the interview, Davis said: ‘Well, Ben, it seems like it is a bad case of deja vu for England, doesn’t it?”
Youngs responded with a very brief answer before walking off.
But he has now come out and apologised via his Twitter account.
Just wanted to say sorry I walked off during my interview with Sky Sports. Obviously was very emotional and disappointed with result. Good to chat to Gail second time round just now. We go again in Cape Town. Thank you everyone 🌹
