Until a few days ago it was certain that I would stop playing. It is a very emotional day for me, and I am here off the back of an extraordinary and wonderful journey, shared with people who have cared about me greatly.

Discussing the prospect of life after football, Buffon told Barcelona defender Gerard Pique in an interview with The Players' Tribune: "I think that at my age you have to evaluate the situation a month, a week, at a time".

"The more I see him on the pitch, the less he seems to me like a player walking into the sunset", Veronica, 43, told Turin daily Tuttosport.

"If I decide to continue my on-pitch career, it will boil down to whether I still have the necessary drive and strength".

"As a figure in sports, I didn't and still don't want to leave Italy as long as I don't have to". I do not want to end up playing in lower leagues. I'm proud to say it's not like that.
