Everyone is sending their prayers to Richard Dawkins after Sky News has reported that he has suffered a stroke at the age of 74.

Religious groups, which Prof Dawkins often attacks in his books and public speeches have offered their prayers and have wished him to a speedy recovery.

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Atkinson made this statement on twitter:

‘Not always seen eye to eye, but we’re all praying for you to get better, we’ll all thank God if you do’.

The archbishop couldn’t be reached for comment as to whether he was being sarcastic again.
