Vicente Del Bosque leaves Spain national team

Vicente Del Bosque has reportedly resigned from his role as Spain national team manager.

The 65-year-old reportedly announced his decision on Spanish radio on Thursday.

Del Bosque has opted to step down from the job he has held for the past eight years following La Furia Roja's failure at Euro2016 which saw them eliminated by Italy in the Round of 16.

During his stint in charge of Spain, former Real Madrid boss Del Bosque won the 2010 FIFA World Cup and 2012 UEFA European Championship.

The Real Federación Española de Fútbol (RFEF) is yet to confirm the announcement.
