The news came through while Sky Sports' Super Sunday was still on air, meaning we got to see the faces of the pundits at the exact moment they found out.

Thankfully Twitter user @ChrisTower_88 managed to capture the magical moment at which Liverpool and Arsenal legends Jamie Carragher and Thierry Henry heard the news.

It was immediately clear that Henry's shocked expression and caring caress of Carragher's leg were going to transcend football, and the internet did not let us down.
