Earlier today, South African all-rounder Jacques Kallis announced his retirement from international cricket, just a few months out from the 2015 World Cup.

Here's how Twitter reacted.

After a disappointing tour of Sri Lanka, Kallis has decided to call it a day.

For me, he's the greatest all-rounder I've ever seen, and one of the best there has ever been.

And it was pleasing to see that I'm not alone in thinking that.

Here's some of the reaction from his team-mates, opponents and others on Twitter, from those who played alongside him like Alviro Petersen and JP Duminy, and those who played against him, such as Kevin Pietersen and Michael Vaughan.
