Mitchell Johnson: Australia fast bowler retires after 'losing hunger'

Australia fast bowler Mitchell Johnson retires from all forms of international cricket after two Tests of the three-match New Zealand series having "lost that hunger".

Johnson retires as Australia's fourth-highest Test wicket-taker, with 313 in 73 matches, having also taken 239 one-day wickets.

The left-armer "really enjoyed" himself on his last day in international sport and had a "tear in the eye" when carried off the field by team-mates.
