Andrew Flintoff does not seem to be too bothered of retirement as he was recently spotted at Lords.

His most recent visits to the Home of Cricket have been as a player – most memorably in 2009 when his spell of 5-92 inspired England to their first Ashes victory at Lord’s in over 70 years.

This visit to Lord’s is, sadly for England fans, slightly more low-key – but one Flintoff is grateful of nonetheless. Flintoff is accepting his iconic MCC Members’ tie after an offer from the Club of Honorary Honorary Life Membership earlier this year.

Though the 33-year-old was thrilled to accept the offer, he admits coming to terms with his retirement is a struggle – particularly on days like this.
