Muslim snooker player Rory McLeod has explained the reasoning behind the ‘ISIS’ badge he was spotted wearing against Ronnie O’Sullivan in the Welsh Open.
McLeod, the only British Muslim on the snooker circuit, caused a stir on social media with his waistcoast badge bearing the initials ‘ISIS’ in his match against O’Sullivan on Monday.
But he has since explained that the badge bore the logo of ISIS Business Solutions – his personal sponsors of the last 14 years – rather than of an Islamic terror organisation.
