Kevin Pietersen has called time on a legendary and, at times, controversial career. And, as you would expect, the tributes are coming in on social media

I guess my #BringBackKP campaign is now officially retired too.— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) March 17, 2018
Kevin Pietersen was the best England batsman I've seen.
Though only the 2nd best to play at @NewickCC, as this picture confirms.
You were treated disgracefully @KP24 - but genius always annoys mediocre dullards. pic.twitter.com/dD3i3Xw6id
Happy retirement @KP24, comfortably with most entertaining & destructive batsman I've ever seen. Played with & against him in early years. Divided opinion throughout his career but never dull. Cricket needs rockstars, and he was one. Good luck! (However, can't resist this pic) pic.twitter.com/xoqPYKbOMM— Charles Dagnall (@CharlesDagnall) March 17, 2018
With @KP24 retiring, its an end of an era! I am honoured and glad to have had a chance to share the dressing room with him. Learned alot from this legend and will always cherish the experience of playing along side him #TOPLAD pic.twitter.com/w1LnCBgah9— Hassan Khan (@16hassankhan) March 17, 2018
