BBC pundit Alex Scott decided to wear the OneLove armband in support of the LGBTQ+ community while on air ahead of England’s opening World Cup match against Iran.

England opted wearing the armband in Qatar due to the threat that captain Harry Kane could receiving a yellow card for doing so. The late decision from the FA has been heavily criticised and Scott did not follow suit.
