NFL legend Tom Brady shocked the world of sport on Sunday night when, out of the blue, he announced a comeback ahead of the 2022 season. The decision comes just six weeks after he brought an end to his incredible 22-year trophy-laden career, with the quarterback regarded as the greatest to have ever played the sport, having won seven Super Bowls.
