More than one in ten people are left-handed – which means John McEnroe’s really not that special – The Sun

IT’S enough to make John McEnroe rage…he’s really not that special.

The fiery tennis ace stood out as a mercurial left-hander — but a major study has confirmed that at least one in ten of us are lefties.

The findings come from a study of 2.3million people across Europe.

It showed that 9.34 per cent of us were left-handed all the time and up to 18.1 per cent used our left hands for some tasks.

That gave researchers the most accurate estimate yet — 10.6 per cent of us are truly left-handed like McEnroe, known for yelling “you cannot be serious”.

And researcher Dr Silvia Para­cchini, of the University of St Andrews, said: “The proportion of people using different hands for different tasks is almost as big as the proportion of left-handers.”
