Sport will resume in the UK on Tuesday after the nation stopped to pay their respects to the Queen on the day of her state funeral.

The world of sport came to a halt across the country on Monday as people paid their last respects to the Queen, who died on September 8 and was laid to rest at St George’s Chapel in Windsor after a service at Westminster Abbey.

Races were canceled for the day and figures from a sport the Queen loved were in attendance at her state funeral.

The England national team players would normally have arrived at St George’s Park on Monday, but they were given an extra day off to spend time with their families on such a historic day.

Gareth Southgate’s side will instead start reporting for international duty on Tuesday ahead of Nations League games with Italy and Germany this month.

Former Three Lions captain David Beckham, who waited in line for 13 hours to see the late monarch in state at Westminster Hall last week, paid his own tribute on Instagram.

“Our queen is home,” he said. “We said a final farewell to Her Majesty The Queen. This week the world mourned the loss of a unique, inspiring and caring leader.

“People from all walks of life came together in their thousands to show their gratitude to our beloved queen. Along with the incredible ceremony and tradition, we saw a loving family mourn a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother with dignity and devotion.

“His legacy of service and devotion to duty will endure. Long live the King”

English Football League clubs were among many teams and organizations to join in tributes to the Queen on the day of her funeral and several will be back in EFL Trophy action on Tuesday.

Arsenal and Rangers will also play crucial Women’s Champions League games against Ajax and Benfica respectively.

Running, the Queen’s favorite sport, had originally scheduled meetings at Leicester, Warwick, Hamilton Park and Wolverhampton on Monday, but they were canceled after the funeral date was announced.

Meetings will resume in Beverley, Lingfield, Newcastle and Warwick on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, LV=Insurance County Championship fixtures will also kick off and England cricketers will play their first game in Pakistan 17 years later today.

Jos Buttler’s White Ball team paid tribute to the Queen with a team-observed period of silence on Monday before the spotlight turned to competitive sport.

England will play the first of seven Twenty20 internationals against Pakistan in Karachi on Tuesday afternoon.
