Two-time Olympic champion Adams announces retirement over eyesight fears

Nicola Adams, the two-time Olympic champion and current WBO flyweight world champion, has announced her retirement from boxing at the age of 37.

Adams penned an open letter to her local newspaper, the Yorkshire Evening Post, in which she revealed that continuing her in-ring career risked serious injury.

Adams became the first woman to win Olympic gold in her sport when she took the flyweight title at London 2012 and successfully defended her crown in Rio four years later.
