The world of rugby has paid tribute to legendary All Blacks fly-half and two-time Rugby World Cup winner Dan Carter following the announcement on Saturday of his retirement.

The news brought down the curtain on an unbelievable tenure on the field from the 38-year-old, and unsurprisingly the tributes continue to pour in from all around the rugby globe.

Carter remains the highest points scorer in Test-match rugby union with 1,598 and won two World Cups during a 12-year spell with the All Blacks.

The fly-half was also part of the all-conquering Crusaders side in the 2000s before he plied his trade in France and Japan.

Following the announcement, everyone was quick to offer the great playmaker their congratulations on an outstanding career, which saw him go down as one of the best to ever grace the game.
