The pound has fallen more than 15% against the U.S. dollar since the country voted to leave the European Union on this day last year, making it one of the worst-performing currencies in the world over the past 12 months.

Below is a quick point-by-point tracking of the pound's historic fall in global foreign exchange markets over the past year.
