Former Liverpool striker Michael Owen caused a Twitter frenzy as fans rushed to his profile to mock his latest tweet.
Tennis star Emma Raducanu took the crown for Sports Personality of the Year and in response to the win, Owen congratulated the 19-year-old by tweeting a picture of himself receiving the same title in 1998.
Owen added the the caption: “Makes me feel very old that she’s the same age as I was waaaaay back in 1998.”
After ending Britain’s 44-year wait for a women’s Grand Slam singles champion and securing the US Open title, Randucanu is a well-deserved winner of the honorable honor.
Many fans and sports stars commended Raducanu on her spectacular achievement, however it was Owen that took over the spotlight after his response went viral within minutes.
Inspired by Owen’s unique congratulatory tweet, thousands of fans shared their hilarious praises and we love every single one of them.
