ST. PETERSBURG, November 6 (R-Sport) - Russian figure skating star Evgeni Plushenko said Tuesday he is hanging up the blades after Sochi 2014.

Plushenko made the expected announcement ahead of a jubilee show dedicated to his 30th birthday in St. Petersburg.

"If everything goes well, then I'll finish my amateur career after Sochi," the 2006 Olympic champion said. "After next season I'll end my career and retire."

Plushenko is returning to competition after a knee operation in the wake of the European championships in January, where he won the gold medal.

He came fourth in the team-based Japan Open last month, won by local star Daisuke Takahashi, and next skates in the Russian championships in Sochi in December.
