Sports comes to a standstill in the UK as tribute to late Queen Elizabeth II
Following the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the sports in the United Kingdom have been put on hault as the Britishers pay their last respect to the longest serving Monarch in the history of British. It’s one of the darkest period in the United Kingdom.
The English Football League has posted on their Twitter page: “On the day of the funeral for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the EFL and its clubs would like to join the nation in reflecting on the late Sovereign’s remarkable life of service to the country, and our thoughts are with the Royal Family.”
Moreover, former English football captain and legend David Beckham also queued for almost 12 hours last week to see the Queen lying in state at the Westminster Hall.
“Our Queen is home. Today we said a final farewell to Her Majesty the Queen. This week the world has mourned the loss of a unique, inspirational and caring leader,” said the former Manchester United and Real Madrid player on his Instagram handle.
“People from all walks of life came together in their thousands to show gratitude for our beloved Queen. Alongside the incredible ceremony and tradition, we have watched a loving family grieve for a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother with dignity and dedication.
“Her legacy of service and devotion to duty will endure. Long live The King” read the post of Beckham.
