“After 13 years of representing my country with pride, I would like to tell you that I am ending my international career,” the former Arsenal star wrote.

“I would like to thank the Gabonese people and all those who have supported me in the good times as well as the bad ones.

“I will always have great memories like the day I made my debut, or the day I came back from Nigeria with the African Player of the Year award. Sharing it with everyone is an unforgettable moment.

“I want to thank my father who made me want to be like him and I hope I made him proud in wearing our colours.”
