Tony Bellew leads well-wishes to Republic of Ireland captain Seamus Coleman

We too wish him a speedy recovery


We will not be showing you footage of the leg break.

The Republic of Ireland drew 0-0 at home with Wales on Friday but, a night that struck the right notes early on with the tributes to the late Ryan McBride, finished on a sour note as captain Seamus Coleman suffered an horrific injury.

The Everton full-back appeared to badly break his leg following a reckless, red card tackle from Neil Taylor.

With the 28-year-old lying stricken on the Aviva Stadium turf, his team-mate Shane Long came over and gave him a hug.

Those from the sporting community and beyond united in wishing the Donegal man a swift recovery.
