Iker Casillas has announced his decision to retire

Porto goalkeeper Iker Casillas will announce his decision to retire from football after suffering a heart attack in training.

The Real Madrid legend was rushed to hospital after the incident, but thankfully made a full recovery.

Casillas has spent the last four seasons with Porto after a glittering 15-year career with Los Blancos, winning five La Ligas and three Champions Leagues.

He also has 167 Spanish caps to his name, winning the 2010 World Cup and two European Championships with La Roja.

Casillas is set to be offered a coaching role next season.

Porto's president Jorge Nuno Pinta da Costa confirmed the club's desire to offer the legend a new role for 2019/20.

"Casillas has one year left on his contract and we would like him to stay at Porto in a different capacity, and not just for the remaining year of his contract," he said, per AS.

"He is one of us and he will always have a place at Porto".
