Fulham owner Shahid Khan joined players across the NFL in showing their solidarity during the American national anthem at the Jacksonville Jaguars' game at Wembley Stadium.
Mr Khan, who owns both Fulham and the Jaguars, joined several players in locking arms during the playing of the national anthem in solidarity and against the words of President Trump as players across America either knelt or locked arms over the course of Sunday.
Mr Khan, who locked arms with linebacker Telvin Smith and tight end Marcedes Lewis, who made history by becoming the first person to score a hattrick at Wembley, had previously donated $1million to Trump's inauguration festivities, but that didn't stop him from joining his team in an unprecedented act of unity.
After the game, the Fulham owner released a statement where he stated he was "honoured to be arm in arm" with his players and staff during the national anthem.
It read: "It was a privilege to stand on the sidelines with the Jacksonville Jaguars today for the playing of the U.S. national anthem at Wembley Stadium.
"I met with our team captains prior to the game to express my support for them, all NFL players and the league following the divisive and contentious remarks made by President Trump, and was honored to be arm in arm with them, their teammates and our coaches during our anthem.
"Our team and the National Football League reflects our nation, with diversity coming in many forms – race, faith, our views and our goals.
"We have a lot of work to do, and we can do it, but the comments by the President make it harder. That’s why it was important for us, and personally for me, to show the world that even if we may differ at times, we can and should be united in the effort to become better as people and a nation."
