    Shamed former Wigan star Marlon King converts to Islam in prison and names himself after 'hero' Abu Hamza

    By Sportsmail Reporter
    Last updated at 11:23 AM on 12th April 2010

    Jailed ex-Wigan striker Marlon King is reported to have converted to Islam and has told inmates hate preacher Abu Hamza is his 'hero'.

    King, who was convicted of sexual assault and assault occasioning actual body harm when he punched a 20-year-old female university student and broke her nose in December 2008, has also demanded that other prisoners call him Abu Hamza Tariq, reports The Sun.

    Hamza was jailed for seven years in 2006 for soliciting murder. King is said to pray five times a day, has demanded Halal meat, and will only speak to other Muslim inmates.

    The Sun says prison staff at HMS Wayland in Norfolk, are shocked by King's change of behaviour - just three weeks after the newspaper reported that cocaine and a banned mobile phone charger had been found in the 29-year-old's cell.

    The former Jamaica international is also said to have suffered a black eye after a row in a dinner queue a fortnight ago.

    An insider is quoted in The Sun as saying: 'Marlon's gone from bad boy convict to devout Muslim in next to no time. He is talking about Abu Hamza as a hero - even though he is hated by the public.

    In the dock: King leaves Court after facing charges of sexual assault last year

    'Marlon has even talked about converting his family when he gets out of jail later this year.

    'This isn't temporary - it's a total lifestyle change. Marlon reads books about Islam for hours in his cell.'

    King, who earned £35,000-a-week at Wigan before the club terminated his contract last October, is also reported to have made the astonishing claim that he will play for Chelsea on his release from prison.

    not sure about having abu hamza as a hero, but mashAllah quite a few people reverting in prisons, though they have to be aware of dodgy teachings

    Yep. The Sun is about as reliable as Thatcher's economic policies. It is a scummy paper filled with nonsensical fantasy articles that it's devoted bunch of brainwashed, page 3 obessed readers relish.

    I googled the story and found it mentioned in Metro, Daily Mail, Click Lancashire and Daily News and Analysis .

    All articles refer back to The Sun as their source of information.
    As Abdullahii and Supreme say, that's not a reliable source to go by ...
