EUROPEAN football fans are two-and-a-half times more likely to break down in floods of tears than the English – after their side WINS!
However British blubbering is much more likely in the event of a loss.
New research by Sharp FanLabs has found the amongst Europeans, on average 37 per cent have cried after a defeat, and 25 per cent after a win.
In England, these figures rose to 47 per cent when losing, but dropped to just nine per cent admitting ever shedding a tear after a win.
Overall 62 per cent of people admit to ever crying following a match. Danes are the thickest skinned, with on 41 per cent admitting to crying, while the Portuguese say 76 per cent of them have welled up following a football match.
• Sharp FanLabs is conducting the largest ever study of European football fans to find out about their attitudes, behaviour, passion, and knowledge.
