Austria's Christian Fuchs announces retirement from international football

Leicester City left-back Christian Fuchs retires from international football with Austria at the age of 30.

Austria captain Christian Fuchs has announced his retirement from international football.

The Leicester City defender confirmed the news on his Facebook page, one week after the national team were eliminated from Euro 2016 in France.

Fuchs, who helped the Foxes win a historic Premier League title last season, has ended his international career at the age of 30 after earning 78 caps.

In a video posted on social media, Fuchs said: "The match against Iceland was my last one in red-white-red. I'm very proud of the 10 years I spent with the national team, I did everything with passion."

Fuchs joined Leicester from Schalke 04 in 2015.
