Scotland's record cap holder Chris Paterson has announced his retirement from international rugby.
The 33 year-old brings to an end a celebrated international career which saw him score 809 points in 109 caps.
During his 12 year international career, he scored 22 tries, kicked 90 conversion and kicked 170 penalties.
In 2010, he reached 100 caps in a Six Nations fixture against Wales, and went on to became only the fifth player to score more than 400 points in the history of the Five/Six Nations a year later.
Paterson played in all four of Scotland's games during this Autumn's World Cup in New Zealand. It was during the 2011 World Cup that Paterson broke the Scottish record for tournament appearances, which now stands at 15.
Despite failing to progress through the group stages, Paterson hoped to continue representing Scotland, however a hip injury has severely hampered his kicking game, restricting his outings for club side Edinburgh.
