    Sir Mark Todd has announced his retirement from eventing this morning in Ireland


    The 63-year-old has exited the sport once before, but says this time there will be no come back.

    He told NZME before the Rio Games that winning Olympic gold is the pinnacle of any sporting career.



    He finishes with two individual Olympic gold medals, four Badminton titles and five Burghley crowns.

    Todd has competed at seven Games and multiple World Equestrian Games where he was on two gold medal-winning teams.
