Anti-gun campaigners criticised the Manchester City forward after he shared a photo of himself with the tattoo of an M16 assault rifle on his leg. But Sterling said it reflects a vow he made to "never touch a gun" after his father was shot dead when he was a boy. According to previous reports, Sterling's father was killed in Kingston, Jamaica. Sterling, 23, who will travel to Russia this summer as part of England's World Cup squad, first revealed his tattoo in a photo posted to Instagram of himself in training with team-mates at St George's Park.

Lucy Cope, who founded group Mothers Against Guns after her son was shot dead in , said Sterling should not play for England unless he gets rid of the tattoo. Speaking to the Sun newspaper, she said: "This tattoo is disgusting. Raheem should hang his head in shame. It's totally unacceptable. He's supposed to be a role model but chooses to glamorise guns. Former England player-turned-pundit Gary Lineker said Sterling was "a terrific footballer with a brilliant work ethic", and called the Sun's treatment of him "disgusting".
Many who tweeted their support highlighted the footballer's interaction with fans at a training event at St George's Park and other experiences of Sterling's character.

Compared with a Ruby canvas, it is a steal; placed next to a Barbour, not so much. The main line is what most people will buy.

Production for the lines is based in Los Angeles, but also Italy, Japan and Hong Kong, and pieces have been made available through online retailer ssense. The clothes themselves are some of the most interesting and exciting I have seen in a long time. We first met two years ago when he was working with Simons.
He worked in construction before pursuing an art degree. But before all of that, Ruby had a sewing machine. They moved to the US when he was a child, first to Baltimore, then to Pennsylvania, where his hippyish, self-sufficient parents emulated The Good Life in a community that saw them as dangerous outsiders, son included. His mother gave him the sewing machine when he was Ruby used it to create his own clothes and mark himself out even more so as unusual.
Around a decade ago he began creating clothes again. He even had special branded zips and labels made. For Ruby, this latest fashion label has been a natural extension of his working practice, his interest, his life. Art and fashion have been enjoying a fruitful crossover of late. But, generally, the enthusiasm comes from fashion towards art, as if using the medium as a way to legitimise the endeavours of designers and, maybe, distract from the sordid topic of coin. But, over the years, I started to understand that there was a younger generation that was not bothered by it.
Music, film, art, fashion — all of those things were levelled for them, and I really appreciated that.
I like that. Ruby is interested in the idea of the creative director.

To some degree, his work, which he describes as sincere, emerged 12 years ago as a repudiation of the slick production values and philosophy of artists such as Jeff Koons. Ruby has assistants, of course — like the welder. I might make a sculpture and we put it out in the world and it falls on somebody. His fashion is an extension of that. Sometimes I go through phases where I just want to work by myself.
That being said, I do like working with a team — and fashion started to seem like a better way to do that, to work with a lot of different people, work towards producing something, and then being able to put it out into the world. Ruby has previously referenced the Bauhaus in relation to his practice — both in its crossing of mediums and its lack of hierarchy — and it rings true. How modern. How new.
