CELEBRITY Retirement

Argentinian soccer star Sergio Aguero has announced his early retirement from the sport. The decision was made a month after the Barcelona striker experienced chest pains during a game and was taken to hospital. He was diagnosed with cardiac arrhythmia and told that continuing to play soccer would put his life at risk. Aguero ultimately made the decision to retire, stating that "life comes first." The 33-year-old player has already had a distinguished career with clubs like Atletico Madrid, Manchester City, and finally, Barcelona. In an emotional speech, Aguero said, "I will leave with my head held high. I don't know what awaits me in the next part of my life. But I know I have people who love me. I will always remember the amazing things."

Of course, the soccer star is not the first celebrity to retire early. In fact, there are many stars who for one reason or another made the exact same decision, some at an even younger age. Check out this gallery to find out who they are!
