Fernando Alonso launches emoji app, includes deckchair antics

Leave a comment

Fernando Alonso has followed in the footsteps of Kim Kardashian, Justin Bieber and Steph Curry by launching his own custom emoji app.

As well as being one of the most impressive and relentless racers Formula 1 has known, the two-time world champion has been ’embracing the meme’ more and more in recent years.

The McLaren driver announced revealed his new emoji app on both the Apple Store and Google Play, allowing his fans to access the stickers for use in messages and posts.

There may have been 77 Alonso-jis (that works, right?) to pick from, but there could be just one winner: the deckchair, as seen in Brazil for the past two years.

So if you’re tired of sending the same old spicy memes to your friends, Fernando’s got your back covered.

Depending on McLaren’s fortunes through 2017, we imagine some may be used more than others, though…
