Brazil star Ronaldo hangs up his boots
14th February 2011 - Sigvard Magnus
Brazilian striker Ronaldo has announced his retirement from all professional football games, finally ending a distinguished career.
The 34-year-old has been plagued with injury and weight problems in recent years, but was hoping that he could run down his career back in Brazil with Sao Paolo club Corinthians.
However, 18 years of professional football has taken its toll, and he has finally conceded that his body cannot take any more soccer games.
He said: "I think of an action, but I can't do it the way I want to. It's time.
"It's the body that's hurting me. The head wants to go on, but the body can't take any more."
During football games with PSV Eindhoven, Barcelona, Real Madrid and AC Milan, the player once known as The Phenomenon scored over 350 club goals.
Despite suffering career-threatening knee injuries on three different occasions, he was named World Player of the Year three times, won two World Cups and holds the record for most goals scored in the World Cup Finals.
