Former Manchester United star footballer and United States Ambassador Dwight Yorke has been denied entry into the US, after President Donald Trump’s new border laws on muslim countries.

According to former Sky Sports presenter Richard Keys, the United ambassador was refused to enter the country under the border controls recently put in place by President Trump as he ‘has an Iranian stamp in his passport’..

Keys posted on Twitter: ‘Well done @realDonaldTrump. Man U ambassador Dwight Yorke denied transit access to Miami cause he has Iranian stamp in passport. #crazy’.

President Trump passed a controversial executive order, which has since been overturned by the appeal court, banning visas for seven Muslim countries, including Iran, last month.

Yorke was a pundit on beIN Sports on Thursday night to provide analysis for United’s 3-0 win over St Etienne in the Europa League. On Friday morning Yorke was stopped on his transit to Miami.

Yorke’s ambassadorial role takes him all over the world and regularly sees him play in United legends XIs overseas.

Trump caused a national uproar with his executive order, which banned people from seven majority Muslim countries which included Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen, for 90 days at the end of January.

Approved refugees, valid visa holders, non-US dual citizens and US legal residents were detained, were barred from planes or ordered out of the US immediately following the order.
