Donald Trump is taunted as the most controversial president the United States have ever had in recent times but the number one citizen of America still has his followers in the sporting world.
The votes in the US general elections are presently being counted and the next president between Trump and Joe Biden will be announced soon.
Many sports celebrities who have large followers have made their intentions known that the billionaire businessman should be voted out.
However, a couple of sports personalities have stood behind their man and believe their influence will make Trump retain his office for a second term.
Here are the four celebrities routing from Trump in the US general elections:
1. Conor McGregor
The UFC former two-weight division champion once said that Donald Trump is the best president the United States has ever had.
2. Vince McMahon
The President of the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) has been friends with Trump for decades and even made the businessman appeared in one of his pay-per-view shows.
His hair was shaved and was given the Stunner by Stone Cold Steve Austin. McMahon is one of Trump's advisers on economic issues.
3. Jack Nicklaus
Trump is a lover of golf and has several golf courses in the Middle East where some of his businesses are situated.
Retired American professional golfer and 18-time major winner Nicklaus tweeted his support for Trump as the incumbent president pinned it on his official handle.
4. Colby Covington
The controversial UFC welterweight has been a fan of Trump that even the American number one citizen calls him after each fight.
After defeating former champion Tyronne Woodley via a technical knockout, Covington received a call from the president while he was on a post-match interview and made everyone listen to their conversation.
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za had earlier reported that Gary Lineker has trolled US presidential candidate Kanye West after managing to get just 57,000 votes at the ongoing elections.
The multi-platinum selling artiste hinted that he will be running again for the White House in the next four years with a post on Twitter saying 'WELP KANYE 2024.'
However, legendary England striker Lineker has poked fun at West after waking up to see Joe Biden and Donald Trump holding the clear leads at the polls.
