Heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua has come under fire for praying inside a mosque.
The backlashes came after the International Boxing Federation (IBF) heavyweight titleholder shared on his Twitter handle a picture where he prayed in a Dubai Mosque.
Some critics even went to the extent of calling out Prime Minister Theresa May for Anthony Joshua to be deported for being a Muslim.
However, it has been reported that the 27-year-old boxer once said not to conform to one religion, but has an interest in many of them.
”I’m not going to dig anyone for their beliefs or anything like that, but I definitely feel religion is a big part of life, whether you believe in it or not, in everyone’s day-to-day life religion’s a big part.
”Prayer and so on, and beliefs is definitely important to me. I don’t have a preferred religion – I’d have to do research.
”I was born a Christian but as I’ve grown into my own man and I don’t attach myself to a religion – 100% I have faith.
‘Then it’s locking into what suits me,” Anthony Joshua explained.
