The defender made the decision known via official Instagram account with a message of gratitude to his family and fans for their support through the 23-year span of his successful career.

“After 23 incredible years as a footballer, I have decided now is the right time for me to retire from playing,” Terry said.

“I want to thank my amazing teammates, coaches, managers and backroom staff, who I was honoured to work with and learn from. They all guided me on my way to playing 717 games for the club I love, and it was a privilege to serve them as captain.

“They also helped me achieve my boyhood dream of playing for and captaining England, of which I am immensely proud.

“I look forward to the next chapter in my life and the challenges ahead.”
