Giggs 'still enjoying' football at 40

Ryan Giggs says he is "still enjoying" his football, and "as long as that is the case I will carry on."

The Welshman turns 40 today, and has been playing for Manchester United for 23 years.

"I don't really think about it age-wise. Every year is a bonus", he said. "You don't start out and think you'll still be playing when you're 40 - but I'm enjoying it."
