Good decision ob both parts obviously he had to do it and it was the logical choice. Will be interesting to see how well he competes when he returns, especially at 2012 because he has already made a come back and won European Champs in 2009 so this will give him a huge mental advantage and he will be more likely to make a similar impact on return like the 2009 European Champs if not possibly an even better improvement as he will have a been there done that attitude when training to return to top match fit form.
