Michael Owen mercilessly mocked for posting an image of HIMSELF in response to his Emma Raducanu SPOTY tweet .. the responses are incredible
| Top stories | World News
Former Liverpool striker Michael Owen has caused a frenzy on Twitter as fans rushed to his profile to mock his latest tweet.
Tennis star Emma Raducanu took home the Sports Personality of the Year crown and in response to that victory Owen congratulated the 19-year-old by tweeting a photo of him receiving the same title in 1998.
Owen added the caption: “I feel very old that she is the same age I was waaaaay in 1998.”
After ending Britain’s 44-year wait for a women’s Grand Slam champion and securing the US Open title, Randucanu is a well-deserved winner of that honor.
Many fans and sports stars praised Raducanu for his spectacular achievement, but it was Owen who took over after his response went viral within minutes.
Congratulation to @EmmaRaducanu who fully deserves to be crowned Sports Personality of the Year 2021.
It makes me feel very old that she is the same age I was waaaaay in 1998.#SPOTY pic.twitter.com/uKh9W30q56
