Ramsey, Wilshere and more: Arsenal stars lead Father’s Day tributes
Arsenal duo Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere lead the Facebook tributes to their dads on Father's Day
Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere led their fellow Premier League stars in paying tribute to their dads on Father’s Day.
Social media sites Facebook, Instagram and Twitter were all awash with dedications to fathers from some of the world’s biggest sporting names yesterday.
Arsenal midfielder Wilshere, who has been linked with a move to Manchester City in recent weeks, snapped a selfie with his old man that he posted on Facebook.
Wilshere wrote: “And happy Father’s Day to the old man @andy_wilshere”
Wilshere’s Gunners team-mate Ramsey, who was part of the Wales side that beat Belgium in their most-recent Euro 2016 qualifier, uploaded a photo from his childhood with his dad.
Meanwhile, one of football’s most-recognisable faces, David Beckham, may be a father-of-four but the former Manchester United midfielder remembered to send a message to his dad.
Finally, retired Wales international and BBC Sport pundit Robbie Savage posted a poignant message dedicated to his father, who died a number of years ago.
