Anthony Joshua slammed by fans after he tweeted picture showing him praying in a mosque


Boxing world champion Anthony Joshua has been hit with a wave of shocking anti-Muslim abuse after tweeting a picture of himself praying in a mosque.

The British fighter tweeted a picture of him and two other men kneeling behind two copies of the Qoran inside a lavish looking Mosque in some rare downtime from training for his superfight with Wladimir Klitschko on April 29 at Wembley.
It was accompanied 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 picture was then subjected to vitriolic comments from people who claimed to be fans of the London superstar.
Joshua, 27, is not a Muslim, and has previously said he doesn't follow any religion, but rather has an interest in them.
