The chairman of a mosque in Peterborough has invited gymnast Louis Smith to observe prayers in a bid to educate him about the Muslim religion.
Abdul Choudhuri from the Faizan-e-Madina Mosque in the city has taken the step after a video emerged of Smith appearing to mock Islam.
Smith has since apologised for his actions, and Mr Choudhuri has called on him to be forgiven.
"We have no objection if he asks for forgiveness," Mr Choudhuri said.
"He should come to the mosque and learn what Islam is all about.
"We want to make him aware and understand the religion of Islam. He is a role model and we hope that by learning about Islam, he will be a better person."

The Bishop of Peterborough got a little bit closer to God today - as he abseiled from the top of the city's cathedral.
He was taking part in a sponsored event to raise funds for improvements at the Cathedral, in time for its 900th anniversary in 2018.
The historian and television presenter Jonathan Foyle was among those taking part.

Muslims across the region have been fasting each day between sunrise and sunset from the 6th of June to the 6th of July as part of the holy month of Ramadan.
But once the sun has gone down there's a chance to catch up with friends and family at the evening meal or Iftar - and in Luton one mosque has been using the event to build bridges with the wider community.
