Sir Alex Ferguson looks in good health as Man Utd legend fills up his car at M&S petrol station in a mask

SIR Alex Ferguson looked sharp as he donned a face mask while filling up his motor at an M&S petrol station in Cheshire.

The Manchester United icon has made the most of lockdown by pumping weights and exercising every morning.

Fergie wore a face mask while filling up his luxury Mercedes-Benz, as the country continues to recover from the coronavirus crisis. 

And the Old Trafford icon, 78, even picked up a cheeky snack from the M&S garage after stopping by.

The Scot had to be extra cautious as the killer virus swept across the nation due to undergoing an emergency brain operation after suffering from a seizure at his home in Wilmslow in 2018.

But the United hero is back fighting fit- and recently praised the NHS for getting the recognition they deserve just two years after they saved his life.

His wife has even had to “nail his feet down” during lockdown as he has been pumping iron and working out while stuck indoors due to the coronavirus pandemic.

On an episode of MUTV Group Chat, United kit man Albert Morgan gave fans an insight to the legendary manager’s training regime.

He said: “I speak to him almost every day and he is on a total lockdown at the moment.

“I think his Mrs has had to nail his feet down!

“He is in good form, he is doing his exercises every morning.

“He has got his dumbbells out, he is on his rowing machine, his walking machine, so yeah he is doing well.”

Fergie recently put aside his rivalry with Kenny Dalglish to congratulate the Liverpool icon after the Reds first Premier League title win in 30-years.

The legendary United manager came up against Dalglish several times while the ex-striker was in charge at Anfield and Blackburn.

But Dalglish, now a non-executive director at Liverpool, revealed Fergie was quick to congratulate him after Jurgen Klopp’s men were officially crowned champions.

He said: “He has contacted us to say congratulations by the modern medium!

“You go through the older generation, Fergie at Man United, Brian Kidd, Mike Summerbee, all the old foes who went through football at the same time and at the end of the year you sent a letter of congratulations.

“That continues. It is a great compliment. You are in competition and you are rivals but to have the intelligence so you are magnanimous enough to send in a letter saying congratulations.

“These days it has gone more technical, you get your texts or emails off the people who you have been competing with all your life.

“They wish it was themselves who won it but they are proud to pay homage to other people.”

Liverpool were officially champions after Chelsea beat Manchester City 2-1, as fans celebrated around Merseyside.
