The BBC has been ridiculed over an article suggesting the knight costumes worn by England football fans could be offensive to Muslims.

For more than two decades, England supporters have dressed as knights for matches, sporting fake chain-mail and St George’s cross tabards.

But ahead of Euro 2016, which begins on Friday, the BBC’s iWonder website published an article entitled: ‘Is it wrong to dress as a crusader for an England match?’
