Jermain Defoe has offered his reaction to an incident involving West Ham midfielder Javier Mascherano during Sunday's derby at White Hart Lane.

Jermain said: "This has been blown out of all proportion. The referee was standing right over me and if he felt I had done anything bad he would have sent me off.

"The incident doesn't look great on TV and I accept that as a role model to kids I have a responsibility to conduct myself in the right way which I always try to do on and off the pitch."
