Sam Allardyce's time as England manager is over after just one match in charge.
Allardyce was targeted in a Daily Telegraph investigation into alleged corruption in England football and crisis meetings at Wembley, involving Football Association chairman Greg Clarke and chief executive Martin Glenn, have reached a conclusion.
In a statement released by the FA this evening, the association said that Allardyce had left his position by mutual consent and that Gareth Southgate would take over for the next four internationals while a replacement was found
At Wembley, where reporters and camera crews had gathered, it was understood an announcement was coming from the FA.
There has been a lot of reaction to the news on Twitter that Allardyce is out of a job after just 67 days. Shane Lowry has produced the best reaction to date:
