Leicester duo unveil Palestine flag during FA Cup final celebrations
Leicester won the game in dramatic circumstances
Leicester City duo Hamza Choudhury and Wesley Fofana unveiled a Palestine flag during their FA Cup final victory celebrations in a demonstration of solidarity with the Palestinian people caught in the middle of the ongoing conflict with Israel.
Leicester secured their first ever FA Cup victory thanks to a goal from Youri Tielemans and a late VAR call that ruled former Leicester man Ben Chilwell offside in the build up to a late equaliser.
The celebrations when Tielemans' long range shot flew past Kepa Arrizabalaga were a reminder of just what we've missed over the past year without fans in the stadium. And the roar at full-time will have brought a wave of joy to countless neutrals watching.
As is very common during title celebrations, players of the victorious side brought out flags of their home nations to wear during the trophy lift. And as the Foxes did their customary lap of honour, Choudhury and Fofana - both Muslim - were seen holding a Palestine flag aloft.
