An emotional Carmelo Anthony announced his retirement from international play on Sunday after helping the United States men’s Olympic team win gold.

Anthony is the first American men’s basketball player to win three gold medals, the third coming after Team USA’s 96-66 win over Serbia on Sunday. He’ll also retire as the all-time leading scorer in men’s U.S. Olympic play with 336 points, as well as the program’s all-time leading rebounder.
