There you are. After 26 years, 38 trophies and an eternity of added on time, Sir Alex Ferguson is retiring from his role as overlord of the Dark Empire. Otherwise known as being manager of Manchester United. It did appear as though he would hang around for a few more seasons but at 71 years of age he’s decided to step out on a high, having just secured a record extending 20th league title.

Unsurprisingly Twitter is on fire with praise, ridicule and general disbelief.

Here’s a selection of responses from some former players and other well-known folk.
