Real Madrid legend, Casillas retires from football

Legendary Real Madrid and Spain goalkeeper Iker Casillas has officially announced his retirement at the end of a 22-year playing career.

The World Cup winner who is 39 has not taken in a competitive appearance since suffering a serious health scare in May 2019.

He recovered from a heart attack to rejoin the ranks at Porto and was named in their squad for the 2019-20 campaign.

Casillas has, however, now taken the decision to hang up his gloves as he seeks to move in a different direction away from the field.
