Gary Lineker was perplexed, while Eddie Hearn found some reason why you shouldn't be all that shocked
The world watched late into Tuesday night and early into Wednesday morning as Donald Trump slowly, but surely, garnered enough of the vote to win the US Election.
The world famous businessman shocked the world and rode a wave of anti-establishment feeling within the US public to record the most unlikely result in US presidential history.
Twitter has been awash today with people on both sides congratulating President-elect Trump, while others despaired for the upcoming four years under his stewardship.
Here is just some of what sports figures thought of the results.
