41 year old football legend of his own right Zlatan Ibrahimovic has officially announced his retirement from the sport. 

The AC Milan Striker revealed that he has decided to end his career on the San Siri pitch following the club’s final game of the Serie A season.

Ibrahimovic’s contract expires at the end of June, having already announced that he will not be renewing it following various injuries. 

Speaking at full-time, the player said that he has so many memories and has lived so many emotions. ‘The first time I arrived her you gave me happiness. The second time love.’ 

He went on thank his second family (the players), the head coach and his staff, as well as the fans. ‘You welcomed me with open arms’ he told the latter, ‘you made me feel at home.’

Neil Agius has suffered some nasty jellyfish stings as he continues to train, starting in the early hours of the morning, for the upcoming Palma to Ibiza swim. 

He was first stung with 15 intense ones as he kicked off his 3 days of 12 hour sets. ‘Difficulty level: 9/10’ he said. ‘The pain through so many stings was something I have never experienced before. These guys packed a punch.’

He soon dove back into the water but was stung within 20 minutes on his quad. This training session seemed to be more gruelling than the one before, ranking it with a 10/10 difficulty. 

‘I can’t actually believe it but, yes, today was more intense. Today started exactly where we left off yesterday’.

‘At this point it was still 2:45 and pitch black. Getting stung at night brought out a level of insecurity I never knew possible. Today was very humbling’ wrote Agius.

For his last round, he turned to the pool, but Neil will soon be diving back into the sea later this month to undertake over 70 hours of swimming and establish another world record.
