Cyber Monday 2018: Amazon UK’s best deals on games, TVs, Echo and smartphones

From speakers to gaming wheels, here are the best discounts from this year’s bonanza

Shoppers who missed out on last weekend’s Black Friday discounts need not despair. Today’s Cyber Monday sales, which feature discounts on everything from iPhones to Smart TVs, are now in full swing. 

Cyber Monday was originally conceived in 2005 as the online shopping equivalent of Black Friday, according to Metro. Today Cyber Monday is an even bigger event with many of its discounts found in-store as well as online.

Below are some of the best deals on games and gadgets currently on Amazon. These deals can change at any point in the day so it’s wise to snap things up fast:
