Germany World Cup winner Philipp Lahm retires from international football following his nation's triumph in Brazil.

Germany captain Philipp Lahm has called time on his international career after guiding his nation to World Cup glory in Brazil.

According to newspaper Bild, Lahm has opted to walk away from Joachim Low's side after making 113 appearances for his nation.
