Two Thai badminton players apologized for their unsportsmanlike behavior during a tournament in Vancouver B.C.

Bodin Issara and Maneepong Jongjit shook hands at a press conference in Bangkok on Saturday.

Video showed Bodin Issara lunging at his ex-partner Maneepong Jongjit and chasing him around the court, then onto a neighboring court before repeatedly punching him and kicking him on the ground.

An official disqualified both players.

The pair had played together at the 2012 Olympics.
