Anthony Joshua receives sickening abuse after posting photo of himself in mosque

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

The 27-year-old IBF heavyweight title holder is not a Muslim, and has previously said he doesn't follow any religion, but rather has an interest in them.

He had taken time out of his training, for his superfight with Wladimir Klitschko on April 29, to visit the religious building in Dubai. He captioned the photo:

'Besides luck, hard work and talent - prayer is a solid foundation. It was nice to join my 
brother as he led through afternoon prayer.'

He was however, greeted with a torrent of criticism by so-called fans after sharing it online.  

Someone even called on the Prime Minister Theresa May to deport Joshua for praying in a mosque. Others said they would be supporting Joshua's opponent Klitschko.
