Twitter leaps to the defence of TV pundit

One of the biggest stories to emerge in the papers today sees Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker receive an attack from the press after comments he made supporting migrants within the British Isles, as the post-Brexit debate took another big turn.

Lineker, an England legend and former star for a wealth of top clubs in European football, saw the most brutal attack on his beliefs come from The Sun – who described the famed football presenter as a ‘leftie luvvie’ and accused him of spreading lies about an Afghan migrant.

The country has been rocked since the summer EU Referendum in the United Kingdom saw the population vote to approve an exit from the European Union, and today’s stories are the first indication of football being affected by the decision.

For now, though, the debate revolves around Lineker’s comments and the calls for the BBC to sack him but it’s fair to say Twitter has been pretty unanimous in its support for the crisp-loving TV icon.
