Okay, we are not dreaming. Pinch yourself, we are very much in touching distance of reality. No matter how much shockwaves travel through the world politics, truth be told, Donald Trump is the 45th president of the United States of America. Social media has just gone crazy with the arrival of the verdict, just some hours past Tuesday midnight.

Hillary Clinton has lost out on becoming the first woman president of the United States and sportspersons, too, have joined the millions of people from all quarters, to post their reactions on the historic verdict.

"Seems Trump has scored big in the 45-64 and 65+ age groups. Wasn't that segment also the one that determined Brexit? Seems right?" posted Indian cricket commentator and expert Harsha Bhogle. "Trump as President already sounds very different from Trump as challenger," he added after Trump's victory speech.

"Renewing the American dream" remained the campaign motto of the 70-year-old Trump and he reiterated that yet again during his victory speech at the Trump HQ in New York City.

Just in case you didn't know, several big shots of the National Football League (NFL) casted their vote for Donald Trump and they had no problem saying it publicly. The list included: Tom Brady, quarterback of the New England Patriots, who called Trump as his close friend but later clarified that he did NOT vote for the Republican nominee.

Nevertheless, Patriots' offensive lineman Matt Light, the team's coach Bill Belichick, NFL side Buffalo Bills' offensive lineman Richie Incognito and head coach Rex Ryan.

Former American football wide receiver Terrell Owens also lent his support, while among other sports, UFC President Dana White, golfer John Daly, former college basketball coach Bobby Knight, former Major League Baseball (MLB) pitcher Curt Schilling revealed themselves as Trump supporters.
