"Thank you and goodbye"

Mohamad Azlan Iskandar Mohamad Azlan Iskandar of Malaysia celebrates winning the gold medal of the Men's Individual Final squash match against Khan Aamir Atlas of Pakistan at Asian Games Town Gymnasium during day nine of the 16th Asian Games Guangzhou 2010 on November 21, 2010 in Guangzhou, China.But you won't see the last of Azlan Iskandar (pic).

The squash player announced his retirement from the professional circuit - something he has been toying about for sometime due to other personal commitments.

Thus it comes to no surprise he was rather "fine" when asked how he felt right after the press conference held at the National Squash Center in Bukit Jalil.

He was, however, overwhelmed with the response after making the announcement.

"Of course I was taken aback by the twitter response," exclaimed Azlan.

"But made the decision a while back. Thank you all for the overwhelming support."

Azlan will surely be part of the sport through the Azlan Iskandar Squash Academy.

And he will surely steal the headlines in the near future - not through his exploits on the squash courts for sure.

HD says: Thank you and all the best.
