Whether you love him or hate him, there's no denying that Tom Brady is one of the most popular figures in North American sports history. Now, it seems like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback's popularity is also unquestioned on the other side of the pond.

The NFL UK's Twitter account revealed Friday morning that Brady had the most popular jersey in the United Kingdom in 2021. It's certainly impressive to see him beating out younger quarterbacks like Patrick Mahomes (No. 2) and Lamar Jackson (No. 3) at this stage in his career.
Nevertheless, it shouldn't be surprising after the year he's had. Brady started off 2021 by winning his seventh championship title and fifth Super Bowl MVP award.
Fast forward to this season and the Buccaneers have already clinched an NFC South title with their 11-4 record. Meanwhile, Brady has been a big part of that, leading the league in completions (422), passing yards (4,580) and touchdowns (37) despite being 44 years old.
Add that to the fact that Brady has shown a lot more personality since leaving the New England Patriots and it makes sense that he's gotten more popular with age. Unless he begins slowing down, it wouldn't be unfathomable to imagine him being the United Kingdom's favorite QB in 2022 as well.
