Irish sportspeople are queuing up to congratulate Colm Cooper on a fantastic Kerry career after the legendary forward announced his retirement from inter-county football today.

As first reported in this morning's Irish Independent, Cooper confirmed the news in a statement a short time ago, with social media immediately flooded with tributes to the four-time All-Ireland champion.
