Marcus Rashford offers classy support to Emma Raducanu after Wimbledon heartbreak

Marcus Rashford has offered his support to tennis player Emma Raducanu after the 18-year-old was forced to retire from her Wimbledon match against Alja Tomljanovic. The young prodigy was taken aback in the second set and after treatment from medical staff, the match was abandoned.

Raducanu had impressed in the matches leading up to the last-16 but was dealt a heartbreak after being forced to surrender the encounter. She would later confirm that an ‘accumulation of excitement and buzz’ would culminate in the premature and unfortunate end to her involvement in the tournament.

Manchester United and England winger Marcus Rashford has now offered his support to Raducanu on Twitter, drawing to own experiences.

Rashford recalled an incident on international duty almost 10 years ago in his classy response, insisting that Raducanu will overcome the incident and return as a better player. Raducanu is said to be a big football fan herself and has been seen in the Three Lions kit, as pictured above.
