As he hands the role to his 23-year-old grandson, check out the latest Dave Whelan jokes following his resignation as chairman of Wigan Athletic.

Staying true to his word, Whelan steps down after claiming he was “hurt” by his six week ban from football-related activity and £50,000 fine in December for making racist comments related to his appointment of controversial manager Malky Mackay.

After 20 years with the lowly Championship side, the 78-year-old is set to stay on as owner but former chip shop owner David Sharpe will oversee the running of the club.

All the Dave Whelan jokes as he resigns from his role of chairman of Wigan are below:

Dave Whelan has quit as Wigan chairman and appointed his grandson as his successor. "I broke my leg once," said Whelan in a statement.
