Shane Williams is reportedly ready to fully retire from rugby.

The winger retired from international rugby in December but is under contract with regional side Ospreys until the end of the 2012-13 season.

The 35-year-old has decided to hang up his boots for good at the end of this season, according to BBC Sport.

Williams is Wales's record try scorer, with 58 tries in 87 games for his country and two in four British and Irish Lions Tests.

He will join the BBC's punditry team for this year's Six Nations tournament.
