I’d like to thank the journalists for their patience. From tomorrow I’m a man free of this world. It’s been a long, long career. I’m proud and happy. It’s been a long, long career. Thanks to those who gave me the strength, the adrenalin, the emotion to keep going. Today is my last day as a professional.
