Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has apologised for wearing “brownface” make-up at a private school gala nearly two decades ago.

The 2001 yearbook picture obtained by Time Magazine shows Mr Trudeau with skin-darkening make-up on his face and hands at the West Point Grey Academy.

Addressing the image, Mr Trudeau said he “deeply regretted” his actions and “should have known better”. The Prime Minister is battling for re-election on 21 October.
