The National’s Sport cover for the Wednesday, December 17 issue, featuring Thierry Henry on his retirement from football.

Recalling Henry at his best, Jonathan Wilson writes, “he was both remorseless and beautiful”.

“He won a World Cup and a European Championship with France, a French league title with Monaco, two Premier League titles and three FA Cups with Arsenal and two Spanish Primera Liga titles, a Copa del Rey and a Champions League with Barcelona, but he won something far more precious than that.

”He was a player who almost all fans wanted to watch play, whoever they supported.”
