Footage of a Fox Sports presenter making a homophobic comment has led to his dismissal.

He made the remarks in a debate in Texas during his failed run at the Senate in 2012.

The comments, which drew hearty applause from the audience, left Fox bosses with little choice but to cancel his contract 'with immediate effect'.
