Photo: Alex Ferguson’s Last Chewing Gum Sold For $600,000!!!

Chew's the man: Fergie's gum, as advertised on eBay today (Picture: Twitter)
Sir Alex Ferguson’s last piece of chewing gum has reportedly sold for nearly £390,000, with all proceeds going to charity.
A supporter appears to have scraped up the infamous gum from The Hawthorns after yesterday’s Fergie finale between his Manchester United side and West Brom.

The fan then put it on internet auction site eBay in a bid to land some cash for charity, although no one can have foreseen it would have brought in just shy of £400,000.
Fergie has been a ravenous chewer over the course of his 26 years in charge at  United and would presumably have got through a fair bit of gum during the crazy 5-5 draw which saw his reign come to an end.
