PSG midfielder David Beckham thanked his teammates for making his retirement a special occasion.

Beckham was particularly touched by the honour of skippering the team and said he would be forever grateful.

"That started my emotions kicking in earlier today, when the manager called me in and said 'we've spoken to the players, it's the players' idea - we want to make you captain," the former England captain said.

"It's really special for an Englishman to be captain of PSG - especially on a night that meant so much to the club and the players. It was an amazing gesture and one I'll always be thankful for."
