Isn't that the A-OK sign?

It's a derivative from "okay" in the US, but apparently it can mean other things in other countries. "While the gesture is positive in some countries, in certain parts of middle and southern Europe (not in Spain or Portugal) the gesture is considered offensive (as in "you are a zero" or "you are nothing")." Maybe Klose was insulting Wales?

I don't think it's an ok sign, and he is not insulting Wales because he did that after he scored with Hamburg too. You are right that is insulting in some countries. In Albania that means F U :)
When he did that in Hamburg's game I thought it meant the 3 goals he has scored for Bayern in bundesliga, but he did it again on this game.

He's been doing that sign for some time now. I remember him doing it during the WC. Perhaps the three means his wife and twin boys? A lot of players do a sign for their family and that might be his. Who knows?
