Robert Lewandowski's brilliant gesture has been spotted while Poland fans were booing England taking the knee.

The Three Lions once again put one knee to the ground to continue showing their stance against racism.

And, just as they were booed ahead of a 4-0 win against Hungary earlier this month, they were booed by fans in the National Stadium in Warsaw.

But Lewandowski, the country's captain who is looking for a 73rd international goal in 125 games, showed he was not happy with the home fans.

Images emerged of the Bayern Munich forward pointing to the 'Respect' badge on his left sleeve.

The 33-year-old, who has 565 goals for club and country, was quickly praised for his actions on social media.

"This was a beautiful moment," one said.

"As the racist far right Poland fans booed England players taking the knee, Lewandowski pointed towards the respect badge on his shirt."

Another commented: Rrespect to Robert Lewandowski for pointing at the RESPECT badge on his sleeve as the England players took the knee."

While a third simply added: "Class."

It is not the first time this gesture has been seen, though, as the whole team performed the same gesture during the reverse World Cup qualifier at Wembley in March.

But the message did not seem to get across to some fans, who were heard booing England's gesture before kick off in Warsaw.

Gareth Southgate's boys suffered the same fate during their trip to Budapest's 67-000 seater stadium.

Gareth Southgate had praised the maturity of his players following the behaviour they were subjected to in Budapest, with Raheem Sterling and Jude Bellingham suffering racist abuse.

The Three Lions boss had said of booing from some England fans during Euro 2020: "We accept that there might be an adverse reaction and we are just going to ignore that and move forward.

"The players are sick of talking about the consequences of should they, shouldn't they. They have had enough really."
