How do giants step down?
Some say goodbye after crushing defeats and on the big stage. The others let their careers continue to languish until their own monument crumbles. Football legend Tom Brady (44) also has to make a farewell decision. With defending champion Tampa Bay, the record quarterback sensationally flew out of the NFL playoffs. There had already been rumors that top model Gisele Bundchen’s husband did not want to fulfill his contract until 2023.
The giant twilight in world sport. BILD says which aging mega-stars are likely to continue for how long.
Tom Brady (44) leaves his future open after the play-off: “I’ll see from day to day.” The coming season would be his 23rd in the NFL. His contract with Tampa/Florida runs until 2023. Is he going to end it even earlier? Or is Brady just putting pressure on his club bosses to make the team fit for the championship?
Forecast: He’s still playing for a year. Then it’s probably over.

The Paris Messi is far from the Barcelona Messi. And at the age of 34, it probably won’t be anymore. Come in addition: Lionel Messi is now more prone to injury.
Forecast: After the 2022 World Cup, the Argentine national team will probably be over. After Paris there is likely to be one final chapter in US Major League Soccer.

The time in which Tiger Woods (46) who dominated golf (15 major wins, 683 weeks first in the world rankings) is long gone. He’s just back from a serious car accident. Forecast: Even at the age of 46, he will still be on the tour for a long time. This works better in golf than in other sports. One thing is clear: if he resigns, then with a glamor showdown.
