A restaurant chain today ordered its staff not to ask for payment before a meal after an incident involving a group of black footballers. The AFC Bournemouth players were angered after being told to pay the bill before being served with their food at Pizza Hut. Midfielder Anton Robinson was reportedly told by the restaurant manager that the request was made because of their appearance. He told the Daily Echo: “We had a good idea what he was getting at. A group of white kids came in straight after us and they weren’t asked to pay before they had their food.
