Gallery: Sir Alex's day

Manchester United's players get their hands on the Barclays Premier League trophy on Sunday, while Paul Scholes was also appearing at Old Trafford for the final time as a player, but all eyes were on one man: Sir Alex Ferguson.

The United boss last week announced his impending retirement after 26-and-a-half-years of service for the club - the end of a glorious, trophy-laden era under his stewardship.

It promised to be an emotional occasion, and our photographers were on hand to follow the boss throughout the day to document his final outing as United manager at Old Trafford.
