Athletes across the country took to social media to thank President Barack Obama for his time in office following his speech Tuesday night.

President Obama gave his farewell address in Chicago, highlighting the progress his administration made in office and saying a teary set of thank yous to First Lady Michelle Obama, his daughters Sasha and Malia, and Vice President Joe Biden.

The president, a well-documented Chicago sports fan and basketball fan, will welcome the Chicago Cubs championship team to the White House on Monday, just four days before President-elect Donald Trump assumes the office.

Some expressed pride in seeing Obama in office as the first black man to assume the role of Commander in Chief, while others commented on the contents of the speech.

THANK YOU Prez!!! Barack
