United confirmed later the same day that Ferguson was in intensive care after having surgery on a brain haemorrhage, with tributes pouring in from all over the sporting world for the iconic former manager.

In their initial statement, United said the procedure had gone "very well", leading to optimism around the Scot's condition.
