“This summer will be a good time to hang up my boots,” Hansen said. “After nearly twenty years of having the privilege of making the most beautiful hobby in the world my job, I’m ready to draw a line and say thank you for this time,” he added.

With the Danish national team, Hansen triumphed at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro 2016 and at the last three world championships. He also has the European title from 2012, Olympic silver from Tokyo, two second places from the World Cup and the European Championship, and a bronze from the continental championship. He was named the best player in the world in 2011, 2015 and 2018.

Hansen will try to close his career with another success at the Olympic Games in Paris. In the French capital, he worked for ten years in the team Paris St. Germain before returning to Denmark the year before and signing for Aalborg. In the past, he also worked in Copenhagen and Barcelona.

Recently, the handball player with the typical long hair has been struggling with health problems. In the last season at PSG, he had to undergo knee surgery, after which he suffered a pulmonary embolism. After returning to Denmark, he did not play for a long time due to mental problems. He is currently sidelined with a groin injury.
