Lionel Messi admitted that he's approaching a retirement age after winning a record-breaking sixth Ballon d'Or.

"I'm aware of how old I am. And I enjoy these moments so much because I know that retirement is approaching. Time flies," said Messi.

Messi added that he feels good physically and plans on playing several more years. 

"I'm now 32, though, and will be 33 at the end of the season, so, as I said, everything depends on how I feel physically. Right now I feel better than ever on a physical and a personal level, and I hope I can go on for a lot longer."
