Last night saw possibly the loudest ever example of ‘take a knee’ being booed as Hungary fans jeered at England players during their performance of the BLM-linked gesture.
The incident took place before the two team’s World Cup qualifying match in Budapest.
As soon as England players took a knee, the crowd responded with loud booing and whistling.
Compared to other instances of the gesture being jeered, this was almost certainly the loudest negative reaction it has ever received, with huge numbers of the thousands in attendance at the Puskas Arena joining in.

The media later tried to distract from the issue by claiming that Hungary fans had aimed racist chants at black England players.
