When sportsmen and sportswomen cry
Following John Terry's tears after Chelsea's exit from the Champions League on Wednesday, we take a look at the sporting heroes who also let it all out
Saturday 03 May 2014
Whether it’s Andy Murray after the 2012 Wimbledon Men’s Final, David Beckham relinquishing the England captaincy or Gazza’s famous 1990 World Cup reaction, nothing gets us fans going like seeing the world’s best sporting stars shed a few tears.
Chelsea’s exit from the Champions League on Wednesday night prompted captain John Terry to let it all out once again just as he did after his penalty miss at the 2008 Champions League final.
Either for joy or disaster, we all love it when our heroes show their emotional side and cry like babies.
Bubba Watson’s wobbly bottom lip after both of his Masters’ victories and Michael Vaughan’s resignation as England Test Cricket Captain are right up there with the best post-match out pours.
Here we take a look at the sporting men and women who just couldn’t hold back the floodgates and made themselves look that little bit more human.
Check out the gallery but try and hold it together when reminiscing through some of sport’s more tender moments.
