Mikkel Hansen apparently wants to end his extremely successful career in the summer. The 36-year-old will quit Aalborg Handbold a year before his contract actually ends in 2025.

Hansen led the Danish national team to Olympic victory in 2016, to the World Cup title three times in a row (2019, 2021, 2023) and to the European Championship triumph in 2012. The Olympic Games in his former adopted home of Paris (July 26 to August 11) could be the crowning achievement for Hansen.
