Jeremy Clarkson forced to backtrack after labelling Emma Raducanu ‘snowflake teenager’

Just three months later, Emma beat Canadian tennis player Leylah Fernandez in the final of the US Open.

She made history as the first British female grand slam champion in 44 years.

“When Emma Raducanu abandoned the match she was losing at Wimbledon this year, I sided with John McEnroe and told anyone who’d listen that she was obviously just another snowflake teenager who was so used to getting her way she couldn’t cope when things started to go wrong,” he wrote in his column for The Sun.

“Ha. Not since Neville Chamberlain waved his piece of paper around has anyone been so wrong. Because after Emma’s remarkable US Open triumph in New York there can be no doubt that she’s got a spine made from titanium and nerves of steel,” Jeremy added.
