England Striker Vardy Signs Pride Flag For LGBT+ Fan Group

Leicester & England striker Jamie Vardy has sent a signed Pride flag to the club’s LGBT fans group after it received abusive online messages following his goal celebration against Sheffield United on Sunday.

Foxes Pride said it was “saddened by LGBT-phobic comments” after Vardy celebrated a 90th-minute winner by kicking and breaking a corner flag, which carried Pride colours. 

Vardy was given a yellow card for his over-enthusiastic celebration – not the first time he has celebrated a goal by hitting a corner flag. 

On Tuesday, the fan group posted this image of a corner flag, carrying the Pride colours, which had been signed by Vardy.
