David Beckham, 38, is retiring from soccer after two decades.
He will quit after his final two games with Paris Saint-Germain, The Associated Press reports.
The soccer player is worth $250 million, says the AP. Beckham feels he's going out at the top of his career, according to the Splash video above. As "Good Morning America" tweeted this morning:

But, as we all know, Beckham is known for more than his feet. The famous metrosexual, model, father of four, and hubby to Spice Girl Victoria Beckham, is a fixture in American culture. Somehow we don't think this is the last we'll see of Beckham. At least we hope not, right ladies?
The fashion world is breathlessly waiting to see what Beckham will do with his free time in retirement. Check out some of the buzz on Twitter:
