A number of fans have reacted to what Jordan Henderson did in the Euro 2020 final last night.
Italy celebrated a victory over England, following the penalty shootout of the game, and the Three Lions had to settle for a silver medal.
As England players lined up to take their runners-up medals, Henderson was the only player who didn’t immediately take it off.
And here is how some supporters reacted to his actions on Twitter.
Jordan Henderson is a man of class. He didn’t remove his medal. He is absolutely class.

Jordan Henderson – one of the few who didn’t discard his medal in full view of the TV cameras. Sportsmanship still matters. Dignity in defeat. https://t.co/wm3hoosiua

Exactly what I said, they showed no class at the end, only saw Henderson keep his medal on when he received it

Henderson keeping his medal on today speaks volumes to me. Always been the real leader for that England team on the pitch. Harry’s had a lot more practice to deal with the loss with grace, but given this last year he clearly feels entitled to win trophies. https://t.co/2zcy5fUo6P

Annoys me when they remove the medal. Henderson kept his on, at least until he was out of camera. He’s a class act unlike others.
