French soccer sensation Thierry Henry retires

Thierry Henry, the legendary striker who holds the records for most goals scored with Arsenal and the French national team, announced his retirement from soccer Tuesday.

The 37-year-old Henry won the 1998 World Cup, two Premier League titles, and three FA Cups. He spent the past five seasons playing for the New York Red Bulls — leading them to the playoffs every year — and will join England's Sky Sports next year as a soccer pundit.

Asked by Sky Sports whether he could come out of retirement, Henry referenced the Rocky film franchise: "We all loved the first Rocky, but I don't know about the last one," he said, adding, "I had one comeback and I guess it was enough."
