Alan Hansen retirement: How Twitter reacted to the pundit's final appearance on BBC
The former Liverpool defender retired after the World Cup final
Rio Ferdinand, Alan Shearer and Gary Lineker all sported black suits in the BBC studio on the Copacabana beach, but was that to celebrate the final or because of the former Liverpool defender's final bow?
"I've been in football for 41 years and I'm going out right at the top, just as I did at Liverpool," he said.
"I have worked for a great organisation with wonderful people on the most fantastic programme."
Here's how Hansen's finale has gone down on Twitter:
