Tottenham Hotspur have released a statement apologising for a US survey conducted by the club where one of the questions asked readers to give their opinion on whether "a woman's place was in the home".
The email, which had a club crest at the top, read: "We have an ongoing commitment to learn more about the specific requirements of our loyal fans and everyone who interacts with the club. Therefore, we're seeking your help to increase our understanding of what you think about Spurs and football/sport in general."
Responses given to the offending question included definitely agree, tend to agree, neither agree nor disagree, tend to disagree and definitely disagree.
Here is a screengrab of the question:
Hey, @SpursOfficial, a few of the questions in this survey you just sent out are...unforgivable. #coys pic.twitter.com/VcewE7mJT9

The survey was compiled by an external body to the club and Spurs have now removed the offending question from the survey saying that they "apologise to anyone offended by its initial inclusion".
A spokesperson for the North London club added: "The inclusion of this question in a club survey was wholly unacceptable and a regrettable oversight".
In other Tottenham news, the club have today released a statement saying that star striker Harry Kane will be out injured until next month. The England man injured his ankle in his team's 4-1 win against Bournemouth and there were fears that Kane could miss this Summer's world cup, but according the striker and the club the 24-year-old should be fit for Russia.
Disappointing to be out until next month but injuries are part of the game. Will do everything I can to get back out there asap. ? pic.twitter.com/sznSx6C5Kl
