Former France half-back Frederic Michalak will retire from rugby at the end of the season.
The 35-year-old ends his career as France's all-time leading scorer with 436 points from 77 caps, having won Six Nations Grand Slams in 2002, 2004 and 2010 and competed at three World Cups.
His club career has taken in Toulouse, Toulon and his current club Lyon, as well as two spells in South Africa with the Sharks.
Michalak, who tweeted last week that Monday would be "the time to announce whether or not I will continue my career", has now revealed his decision.
Quoted by Le 10 Sport, he said: "After a long period of reflection and despite an offer from a club, I am calling an end to my career at the end of this season.
"I still want to play but it will be the same situation if I push on for a year. It is not mental, it is the body which says to stop.
"You have to know when to stop. I am 35 and it is starting to become more and more difficult. I told myself this year is the right time to finish."
Wales star Taulupe Faletau looks set to miss most of this season's NatWest 6 Nations after suffering a knee injury.
The powerful number eight, who has won 70 caps and featured on the last two British and Irish Lions tours, was hurt during Bath's European Champions Cup defeat against Toulon last Saturday.
And Bath have now confirmed that Faletau suffered a grade three medial knee ligament injury, which is likely to see him sidelined for 12-16 weeks.
It is understood that Faletau will see a specialist later this week to discover if surgery is required.
