Former Commonwealth games swimmer, Jo Griggs joined the Paddy and Rob breakfast show to discuss the stunning retirement of Tennis star Ash Barty.

Barty revealed on her Instagram that she'll retire from her pro career, which Grigg says is a "smart move".

"I was really relieved, it'll create a discussion around athletes that needs to be had," Grigg said, drawing comparisons to the stresses placed on high-level athletes Naomi Osaka and Nick Kyrgios.

Griggs shared how she is all for athletes taking early retirement into their own hands, and open the door for life after sport.

"To me it shows a real well-rounded human."
