The Democratic Governor of the US state of Virginia is resisting mounting calls to resign, backflipping on an earlier admission that he featured in an old yearbook photo featuring a man wearing a Ku Klux Klan outfit.

Ralph Northam had apologised for the racist image on Friday, saying he was one of the people shown in the photo from his 1984 medical school yearbook.

One of the men was in blackface, the other was wearing the white robes and pointed hood of the Klan hate group.

But on Saturday he said he had looked at the photo more carefully and was not sure it was him.

In a news conference alongside his wife, Mr Northam did admit he had dressed up in blackface to imitate Michael Jackson in a dance contest around the same time.
