The anti-discrimination charity Kick It Out has suggested the Football Association should investigate if Crystal Palace keeper Wayne Hennessey made a Nazi salute during a meal out with his team-mates.
The Wales international was pictured with his right arm pointed out above him in a photo posted on Instagram by Palace midfielder Max Meyer, who is German.
However, Hennessey vehemently denied making the offensive gesture, saying he “waved and shouted at the person taking the picture to get on with it” and “put my hand over my mouth to make the sound carry”.
Kick It Out told Telegraph Sport that it had received independent reports about the image which had been passed on to the FA.
“We are aware of an image circulating in which Crystal Palace goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey makes what appears to be a Nazi salute, which the player has denied,” a statement said.
