Speaking on SiriusXM Town Hall, hosted by Jim Gray, Tom revealed that his family have "sacrificed" a lot over the years to watch him play, and his retirement will mean he is around more for Gisele and their children.

"Things change as you get older, and there's a lot of different responsibilities I have in my life," he said.

"My kids and my family is certainly very important, and they made a lot of sacrifice over a long period of time to watch me play. So, you know, I owe it to them, too."

Speaking of his career, which has seen him win seven Super Bowls; six with the New England Patriots and one with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Tom added: "I play because I love the game.

"I play because I love to compete. We shouldn't stop our life, even though we love something because it's just, someone puts an arbitrary timeline on that," Brady said.

"And I felt for a long time, I could play until I was 45 years old. I think I committed to say, 'Hey, I'm going to play till I'm 45.' And this year I’ll be 44, which naturally takes me to the next year. I've got a two-year contract. We'll see what happens beyond that."

Tom's fans were equally as excited by the news, with one commenting: "Great news!" A second said: "Greatest quarterback ever!" A third added: "We get to watch another year of greatness."
