A Manchester United supporter marrying into a Man City family paid an emotional tribute to Sir Alex Ferguson in his wedding toast.

The groom, who is a Man United fan, fooled his future in-laws into standing and toasting Sir Alex's Ferguson's departure from Manchester United. In the speech, which seemed to be about a personal family loss, he began by saying "I've lost one of the true constants in my lifetime. It's been really hard".

His voice shakes with emotion as he continues "he had such an influence on me... sadly he's no longer with us".

When it was revealed he was talking about Sir Alex Ferguson, it was met with cheers, laughs and some lighthearted booing from the strong Manchester City fans in the family.
