James Maddison heads for the tunnel after receiving a red card.

Leicester City midfielder James Maddison has apologised for diving, after being sent off during his club’s 1-1 draw with Brighton & Hove Albion at the Amex yesterday.

Maddison, who was shown a second yellow card with Albion leading 1-0, posted on Instagram after his team-mates rallied with an impressive second-half display to fight back for a point.

The young England midfielder showed his remorse, saying, 'Apologies to everyone for what happened today. Nobody wants to see diving in our beautiful game. I was anticipating contact that never came, but that's no excuse.

'It's a mistake and I will learn from it. Lads showed fantastic fight and determination to get us back in the game and go home with a more than deserved point.'

Jamie Vardy levelled from the spot, after Beram Kayal had fouled Kelechi Iheanacho, and neither Claude Puel or Chris Hughton had any complaints about the two key decisions in the game.
