PALO ALTO: Tesla Chairman and founder Elon Musk apologised to cave diver Vern Unsworth, saying fault for the insult to the hero was “mine and mine alone,” Bloomberg News reports.

Tesla shares fell on Monday after Musk attacked the volunteer who played a key role in organising the rescue of a Thai youth football team. British diver Unsworth had dismissed the “kid-size submarine” Musk’s Space Exploration Technologies Corp built to try to help as impractical and called it a “PR stunt” in an interview with CNN.

Musk made his comments on Twitter today.
