Iker Casillas has retired from football, Portuguese newspaper Record reported on Thursday.

The legendary goalkeeper decided to call time on his glittering career following a heart attack he suffered while playing for FC Porto on May 1.

The former Real Madrid star joined the Portuguese outfit when he left the Santiago Bernabeu in 2015 and will now take up a role with the club’s board instead.

Casillas won five La Liga titles in Spain as well as three Champions League crowns before adding another domestic league success at Porto.

Capped 167 times for Spain, he led them to two European Championships in 2008 and 2012 while also lifting the World Cup in 2010.

No official announcement has been made yet.
