Motorbike icon Valentino Rossi, 41, retires today after nine MotoGP world titles and 89 Grand Prix wins over 25 years

SEVEN-TIME MotoGP world champion Valentino Rossi has pulled the curtain over his glittering 25-year career after finishing tenth at the Valencia Grand Prix. Reflecting on his career, the Italian said: “I think that the most positive thing in my career is that a lot of people started to follow MotoGP to follow my career from the beginning, and the sport became bigger, more famous in Italy but also all around the world. Rossi started his career in the 125cc category and won a world title in 1997, followed by the 250cc championship in 1999. I would have been happy to win another championship but I cannot complain.
