Retirement from professional sport can be hard on athletes. No longer having the one thing you worked at for decades of your life is a big change.

Some go into coaching, some use their charisma to get roles in the media, and others play a lot of golf.

Peyton Manning retired in the summer after nearly two decades in the NFL and he has decided to take none of those paths. Instead, The Sherriff is in China, absolutely loving life. Scroll down to see just how.

Thanks to the official NFL Twitter account, we have all been blessed with the glorious footage of Manning going down the Great Wall in a toboggan. Watch it here.

We have absolutely no idea why this is happening, or that it was even a thing, but are very grateful to those who made this happen.

This does mean one thing, though. Peyton Manning is absolutely unavailable for any team who may be going through a quarterback crisis. He's just having too much fun to come in and take over right now, sorry Bill Belichick.

Manning was also pictured with Yao Ming during his trip to China. Just a reminder that he's 6"5 and Yao is really big.
