The fashion designer, who has four children with the footballer, said that she and their kids are "so proud" of the 38-year-old star.

She said: "The children and I are so proud of David, it's been an incredible journey for us all as we have watched him play at clubs all over the world throughout the last 15 years.

"Myself and the children have cheered him from the stands, as he has held high trophies with his teams at Manchester United, Real Madrid, A.C. Milan, LA Galaxy and Paris Saint-Germain.

"This was not an easy decision to make, and to me and the children he will always be an amazing sportsman and a devoted husband and father.

"He is, and will always remain, a true ambassador for sport and is not just an inspiration to myself and our children but for millions of people worldwide.

"We are all excited about the next chapter in our lives and the adventures we will explore as a family."
