AFC Wimbledon have just swelled this voluminous season of improbable sporting achievements.
The club began as a protest against the rebranding of Wimbledon as MK Dons in 2002. In the space of just 14 years, the club have reached League One, confirmed via a 2-0 play-off victory against Plymouth at Wembley this afternoon. Ade Akinfenwa - the self-ordained 'beast' - came on as a second-half substitute for his final appearance with the club. When Wimbledon were given a penalty in the final minute of the game, there was only one man going to take it. He absolutely nailed it:
WATCH: "A goal that has promotion written all over it". What a parting gift this could be from Akinfenwa. https://t.co/zivVPnoD03

Akinfenwa then gave his valedictory remarks as an AFC Wimbledon player post-game, and those remarks were utterly brilliant. Watch below:
What a way to finish. We can only hope that somebody does indeed find him on Whatsapp. In his absence, AFC Wimbledon will play in League One, where they will come up against a certain MK Dons.
