At 44, it’s decided, Tom Brady hang up the cleats! The American football player, a true living legend of the sport and considered by many to be the best of all time, will soon announce his retirement.
His agent, questioned, did not want to formalize the news, contenting himself with declaring that he “will be the only person to express his projects with total accuracy. He knows the realities of the American football world and the timing that entails better than anyone, so it will be soon“.
While awaiting a reaction from the quarterback himself, the tributes began to pour in: his teammate at the Tampa Bays, Mike Evans, commented “Thank you for everything big brother, it was an honor“, while thousands of Internet users called him the initials “GOAT”, an acronym for the best player of all time (Greatest Of All Time).
It must be said that his career is still exceptional: selected quite late in an NFL franchise, he won six Super Bowls with his historic Boston Patriots team. While he was announced to be in decline last year, he moved to Florida and signed with a small team that never really had any results.
The change is immediate and, at 43, Tom Brady leads them to victory to win his 7th title, an absolute record that places him among the best American sportsmen in history. In 2007, 2010 and 2017, he achieved almost perfect seasons and was each time declared “MVP”, best player of the year.
Once his announcement is made official, Tom Brady will have more time to devote to his family: in a relationship since 2006 with model Gisele Bündchen, he married her in 2009 and welcomed their first child, Benjamin, now aged the same year. 12 years old. Their daughter, Vivian, was born in December 2012.
Tom Brady was already the father of a little boy, John, born in 2007 from an affair with American actress Bridget Monayhan, from whom he was already separated at the time of birth.
