Thierry Henry announced his retirement with the same grace as he has conducted his entire career on and off the pitch.
The 37-year-old, who played his last game of football for New York Red Bulls last month, an unremarkable 2-2 draw, will join Sky Sports' stable of football experts in 2015.
He leaves his playing days behind having made an indelible mark on the game. With Arsenal, he won two Premier League titles and three FA Cups between 1999 and 2007. Outside the Emirates Stadium they have a statue of their beloved Frenchman. At Barcelona he added the Champions League trophy in 2009 and with France he lifted the World Cup.
But his greatest legacy is not marked by silverware or set in stone. Instead it can be seen in the dynamism of centre forwards across the land.
