Wayne Rooney has donated £100,000 to help the victims of the Manchester bombing through his charity, the Wayne Rooney Foundation.
In a statement on the charity’s page he said: “There are moments in life that instantly affect you and stop you in your tracks. Monday night was one of those occasions.

"Like so many others, I have enjoyed great nights at the arena, often with my family.

“As a father, I am horrified that a night out for so many young people could end so tragically. My heart goes out all those affected. Please give whatever you can.”
The terror attack carried out by a suicide bomber at the Manchester Arena where an Ariana Grande concert was taking place on Monday, saw 22 people killed and 120 injured.

Rooney also urged people to vote with a couple of posts on his official Twitter account, letting his 14.6m followers how to do their bit.
