England's Tindall retires

5:56 am on 16 July 2014

Mike Tindall, the last actively playing member of the England side that won the 2003 Rugby World Cup, has announced his retirement from the game.

The 35-year-old centre, who played 75 times for his country, was pivotal to England's Grand Slam victory in 2003, but his career ended eight years later when he was criticised for a late night out in Queenstown during the 2011 World Cup.

Earlier that year Tindall had married the Queen's granddaughter Zara Phillips.

He'll still be involved in rugby as a television pundit.
