Former England and Chelsea captain John Terry has announced his retirement from football.
The 37-year old who left Aston Villa at the end of last season where he spent one year, made the announcement on his Instagram account.
He wrote: “After 23 incredible years as a footballer, I have decided now is the right time for me to retire from playing.”
Terry’s career saw him earn 78 England caps and won five Premier League titles, five FA Cups, a Champions League title and a Europa League title in more than 700 appearances for Chelsea thereby becoming the club’s most decorated player.
Chelsea players both past and present including Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba have so far sent congratulatory messages to the defender.
He has since been on tour with his family.
Looking at his Instagram posts, it seems Golf is his next sport venture.
