Cape Town - Former Springbok lock Johann Muller has announced that he will retire from rugby at the end of the current European season.

Muller, 34, is Irish club Ulster's captain and has represented them since 2010, making 73 appearances.

He won 24 caps for the Boks and was part of the squad that won the Rugby World Cup in 2007. His last appearance for South Africa was in 2011 when he was a second-half substitute against Wales.

Before moving to Ireland, Muller played for the the Sharks between 2002 and 2010.

He told the Belfast Telegraph website that while he still believes that he is playing well enough, he feels his body is telling him it's the right time to step away from the game.
