Former Liverpool and Chelsea striker Torres retires

The 35-year old, who won the World Cup with Spain in 2010, and back to back European Championships either side of that tournament, has been playing in Japan recently, having signed for Sagan Tosu in the J1 League, after leaving his boyhood club Atlético Madrid for the second time in July last year.

English fans will remember him best for his spell at Liverpool between 2007 and 2011, when he made 142 appearances for the club, scoring 81 times. He was transferred to Chelsea for a £50 million fee in January 2011, a British record at the time, but struggled to replicate his best form at Stamford Bridge, and was eventually sent on loan to AC Milan, before returning to Atlético, the club where he began his career. Nevertheless, during his time at Chelsea he won the Champions League, Europa League, and FA Cup.
