Orban has "no sympathy" for "this kneeling business"


Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban defended their fans today for booing the Republic of Ireland players taking a knee against racism earlier this week.

Orban says he agrees with the supporters booing and claims the Irish players provoked them to do so with their actions before the game in Budapest on Tuesday.

He added that he has "no sympathy" for "this kneeling business" and it has "no place" on a sports pitch.
