AMERICAN pool player Oscar Dominguez has been “severely warned” by officials over comments made in the Mosconi Cup tonight.
The 32-year-old was heard by TV microphones saying to team-mate Dennis Hatch that he has “the touch of a rapist”.
The incident happened in their game against Europe’s Ralf Souquet and Jayson Shaw and was broadcast live on Sky Sports.
The Mosconi Cup’s official Twitter feed issued a statement on the incident that read: “Tournament officials have spoken to Oscar Dominguez regarding his comments in the last match and he has been severely warned about his future conduct.”
But some Twitter users called for Dominguez to be suspended for his comments.
One social media user said: “Dominguez has been warned for saying ‘you have a touch of a rapist’ are you kidding me! Should be banned for life.”
