The man, the myth, the legend.
Paul O’Connell released a statement this morning to announce his retirement on medical grounds and as expected the rugby world has paid huge tribute to one of the greatest the game has ever seen.

Really disappointing to see @Paul_OConnell having to retire. Sensational career in Red & Green. Simply irreplaceable.
