Mitchell Starc was among those within the cricketing fraternity to pay homage to Mitchell Johnson, who announced his retirement from all forms on Sunday.

Johnson stepped away from the Australia set-up in 2015, having played more than 250 times for his country across all three formats.

The left-arm quick continued to feature for Perth Scorchers in the Big Bash League and Mumbai Indians, Kings XI Punjab and Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League.

Cricket Australia paid tribute by posting a highlights reel of Johnson's Test-best 8-61 against South Africa in Perth in 2008, while the likes of Starc, Pat Cummins and the Knight Riders all published their own messages of support.
