Michael Phelps by Patrik Giardino

As well all know after this weekend in Rio, Phelps is now the most decorated Olympian of all time, with a total of 28 medals and as was predicted now he says goodbye!

“This is what I wanted to finish my career. This is the cherry that I wanted to put on the top of the cake,” said Phelps, who confirmed at a press conference in Rio that he is retiring from competitive swimming after a journey of sporting highs and personal challenges that has had no equal in Olympic history.

Thanks for the inspiration and the thrills – it has been an incredible ride!
