The world is rejoicing today as Bono marks the 60th anniversary of his first appearance at Dublin's Rotunda Hospital.
Bono is celebrating his 60th today and while he might not be able to hold a party, he's still getting plenty of love from all over the world. Even though the U2 singer divides opinion in his homeland, the band's international fans seem fairly unanimous in their love for the Northsider.
All morning and last night people have been showering Bono with salutations and one Twitter user even set up an account called Bono's Global Birthday Bash.
If the man himself is looking for a pick-me-up this morning, he could do worse than check out the #Bono60 hashtag on Twitter...
Small sample of the hundreds of toasts that are coming in! Raise a glass, snap a selfie, post it! Happy Birthday Bono! @u2#u2 #bono #bono60 #cheersbono #cheersbono60 #vivabono #vivabono60 #bonobirthday #happybirthdaybono#BGBB #bonosglobalbirthdaybash pic.twitter.com/JjrttqGMfm

Bono turns 60 today. From U2 Barcelona we wish him a happy birthday.
I will publish some of the best photos that I have been able to take of him or with him.
I will start with one of the ones that makes me happiest, Barcelona 2015, with my daughter, my wife and myself#Bono60 pic.twitter.com/e22OMuFgnV
