Donald Trump, Brexit negotiations, hurricanes, Catalonia, controversies, crises and THAT Oscar mix-up.

2017 has been a busy year.

Here we look back at the year that was 2017.

It was also a busy year in international sport.

Neymar broke a world record, men’s tennis saw a resurgence of old favourites with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal claiming Grand Slams while Serena Williams won a record 23rd Grand Slam.

There was also a sad farewell to many well-known faces such as Martin McGuinness, Joost van der Westhuizen, Chuck Berry and Roger Moore.
