Leicester City defender Wesley Fofana has thanked the Premier League and Crystal Palaces players for allowing him to break his fast in the middle of the game.
Fofana is a devout Muslim and thanks to a break in the game in the 35th minute, he was able to get some fluids as he had not eaten or drank for the whole day.
The 20-year-old wrote on Twitter after Monday’s 2-1 win and gave special thanks to his Leicester team-mates as well as Palaces goalkeeper Vicente Guaita.
“I just want to thank the Premier League, Crystal Palacen and Vicente Guaita for allowing me to break my fast in the middle of the game. “This is what makes football great,” Fofana wrote.
Ramadan began in April worldwide and will continue until May 12.
Coach Brendan Rodgers confirmed that Fofana was fasting last week and replaced the Frenchman against west Bromwich Albion.
He played a full 90 minutes last night however as Leicester took a big step towards qualifying for the Champions League in a 2-1 victory. /Telegraph/
