Peyton Manning reportedly set to announce retirement on Monday


Peyton Manning will reportedly announce his retirement on Monday, bringing an end to a glittering career in the NFL.

The 39-year-old Denver Broncos quarterback said he wanted to take time to consider his future after winning a second Super Bowl ring last month.

And Manning now appears set to call it a day, with Ian Rapoport - a writer for the NFL's official website - announcing on Twitter that the decision would be officially confirmed on Monday.

Manning will end his career as the all-time leader in career passing yards and touchdowns, having racked up 71,940 yards and 539 scores through the air.
