Premier League footballer denies making a Nazi salute

Crystal Palace keeper Wayne Hennessey has denied making a Nazi salute during a meal with his team-mates.

The Wales international tweeted after being critisised once the photo had been posted on social media.

"I 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".

"It's been brought to my attention that frozen in a moment by the camera this looks like I am making a completely inappropriate type of salute.

"I can assure everyone I would never ever do that and any resemblance to that kind of gesture is absolutely coincidental. Love and peace Wayne."

The photo had been posted by teammate Max Meyer on an Instagram story, which has since expired.
