Fernando Torres to retire after 18 years of footballSpanish striker Fernando Torres - former Liverpool, Chelsea, Milan and Atletico Madrid player - who is currently 35 years old, recorded a video for Twitter to say he has retired after pleasing all of us for 18 long years of professional football.

The Spaniard won one World Cup (2012), two European Championships (2008, 2012) and Euro U19 (2002) with Spain, a Champions League trophy in 2012 with Chelsea and two Europa League cups (2013 with Chelsea, 2018 with Atletico Madrid).
