Pizza for Italy, Dracula for Romania,  salmon for Norway,  Chernobyl for Ukraine...

These were the pictures and captions used by a South Korean broadcaster to depict nations at the opening ceremony of the Tokyo Olympic Games.

MBC has since apologised for offending viewers, after complaints the visuals were "offensive" and "ridiculous".

The channel said it wanted to make it easier for viewers to understand the entering countries quickly but said it was an "inexcusable mistake".
