Unless Michael Phelps has a Brett Favre-like change of mind, his astonishing swimming career is over.

"Done, done, done — and this time I mean it," Phelps told TODAY Monday morning. "I wanted to come back and finish my career how I wanted and this was the cherry on top of the cake."

Phelps won five golds and one silver in Rio last week, giving him 23 career gold and 28 overall.

To put it simply: Phelps is the most decorated Olympian of all time.

Now he plans on spending time his his wife Nicole and their infant baby, Boomer.
