He mentioned: “I was walking to collect some shoes and saw this guy, I thought it was pretty unbelievable – no one was reacting or seemed to notice.

“I followed him for about two minutes and took photos, I think he was aware I was taking photos of him but didn’t seem to care.”

The man mentioned he appeared up whether or not Hamas may have been a surname, however believes this to be unlikely.

He added: “Even if it was his surname, absolutely he would have been conscious of the affiliation.

“The shirt was a Man United shirt and looked to be newly printed.

“Wearing the name of a terrorist organisation is really shocking, I was very offended, especially as the number 7 could have been in reference to the October 7 attacks.”
