After 354 games, 1066 goals, nine All-Australian picks, four Coleman Medals and his fair share of cheers and boos, Lance Franklin has hung up the boots.

The 36-year-old announced the news on social media with a picture of himself arm-in-arm with Sydney coach John Longmire and his former coach at Hawthorn, Alistair Clarkson.

Press PLAY to hear more about Buddy Franklin’s retirement

Eagles legend and 6PR football commentator Glen Jakovich told Julie-anne Sprague on 6PR Afternoons not many other former AFL players can boast such a complete highlight package.

“He’s the best showman we’ve seen in the last 50 years; he’s showtime, that’s what he is. A generational player,” Jako said.
