Eddie Jones said on Wednesday that he will no longer be using public transport. That decision came following abuse which the England head coach suffered while taking a train from Edinburgh to Manchester on Sunday.
The England head coach was a guest of Alex Ferguson for Man Utd's game against Chelsea at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.
"For me to travel on public transport, I thought was OK. I’m a human being," Jones was quoted as saying by The Telegraph.
"I don’t consider myself any different from anyone else. But I’ll make sure I won’t in future. It’s as simple as that. I can’t. Because it was shown on Sunday what happens when I do."
BBC News sports editor, Dan Roan, has since posted a video of Jones being verbally abused outside of a train station. Yesterday, Jones specifically mentioned taking selfies with supporters while speaking about the abuse he had suffered.
In the video, Jones obliges some individuals with a selfie before they verbally abuse him as he gets into a car.
Jones said that he also endured some hassle on the train and that the abuse he suffered was both verbal and physical.
