How the world of sport saw the royal wedding

Those seeking alternative commentary on Kate's and Will's nuptials could have done worse than follow on Twitter the nation's sporting elite – for whom training yesterday appears to have consisted of sitting on the sofa, in front of the TV.

Mr and Mrs Beckham both looking very nice... #inmyopinion


Im gonna send Will a bbm asking if he wants to spend his honeymoon with Kate watching us down at eastlands vs Man City!


Loving Williams gloves.. Is he coming to the crucible to referee??


If Kate had gone primark and purchased her dress from there she would have become 'the peoples Princess' instantly! #justsaying


Lads, you have never had a better excuse for golf, your missus won't even ask or care where you are!
