Jonny Wilkinson ended his career by helping Toulon to the French title with victory over Castres in Paris.

The former England fly-half, 35, kicked all but three of his side's points in an 18-10 victory in the Top 14 final.

His display included four penalty kicks and a drop goal reminiscent of his winning kick against Australia to win England the World Cup in 2003.

Wilkinson also led Toulon to the Heineken Cup last weekend with a 23-6 final win over Saracens in Cardiff.

He won 91 caps for England during his 17-year career and will now join the coaching staff at Toulon, the club he moved to in 2009.

His team-mates at Toulon mobbed Wilkinson at the final whistle to mark the end of his playing career.
