The sporting world has come together to pay tribute to the Kerry corner-back Marc Ó Sé, who announced his retirement on Wednesday.

Ó Sé won five All-Ireland titles with Kerry, and played in 88 Championship matches. He holds the record of most championship games played, with older brother Tomás.

The 2007 Player of the Year, Ó Sé played over 170 times for his county.

"If you told me as a child that I would go on and win All Ireland's with my heroes I would have said I was dreaming so to be able to do that has been one of the greatest thrills of my life." Ó Sé said in a statement. "To play alongside some of the greatest players to ever play the game is something I will always cherish."

He will continue to play club football for An Gaeltacht.
