American football player Husain Abdullah has received a penalty for 'unsportsmanlike conduct' after performing the Islamic prostration during a touchdown celebration on Monday.
The 29-year-old Kansas City Chiefs player was flagged by referrees during his teams' 41-14 win over the New England Patriots for violating the league’s 'celebration rules'.
However, the actions of the referrees were slammed by the NFL on Tuesday morning when they released a statement saying Abdullah should not have been flagged.
Abdullah, who is a devout Muslim, took time out from the NFL in 2012 to go on the Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca with his brother and fellow NFL player Hamza.Last Mod: 30 Eylül 2014, 16:14
