The Crystal Palace goalkeeper, Wayne Hennessey, who was pictured giving a Nazi salute, claims to have seen Anna Soubry walk by.
Hennessey, who was at a restaurant with his team mates at the time, saw Soubry walk by his table wearing full Third Reich regalia.
Hennessey, who has admitted that his Nazi salute was in poor taste, said he was overcome with anger when he saw Soubry dressed in such a way.
‘She had all the gear on, including a little tashe,’ said Hennessey.
‘I didn’t realise that she dressed like that, on her days off,’ added Hennessey.
