A British boxer was flooded with online abuse after posting on Twitter a picture of himself praying at a mosque in Dubai.
Anthony Joshua has previously said he does not follow any religion, but has an interest in them, according to the Daily Mail.
He tweeted the picture, with the caption: “Besides luck, hard work and talent - prayer is a solid foundation. It was nice to join my brother as he led through afternoon prayer.”
The 27-year-old world champion was hit by a wave of angry anti-Muslim comments.
Some users, however, were positive and defended the boxer.
