The horrified reaction from the world of sport to the victory for Brexit
Published 24/06/2016 | 09:52
British and Irish sport stars have been reacting to the news that Britain has voted to leave the European Union and most are horrified.
The decision of the electorate (the England and Wales electorate) will have serious ramifications for sport in the UK.
Many top sport personalities have been waking up to the news this morning and have been making their feelings known on social media.
Jamie Carragher has had a pop at the older demographic who appear to have decided the result, Rory McIlroy wants a 'mulligan' for 2016 with Donald Trump in the race for the US presidency and Gary Neville is having a go at Barack Obama for his role in pressuring Britain to stay in the EU.

Gutted. Should 'politics' be a compulsory school-taught subject or do we just leave the biased media and Farage 'teach' us?Uneducated vote— Jamie Roberts (@Jamiehuwroberts) June 24, 2016
