CNN International sport anchor Candy Reid is leaving the network after 11 years.

Reid announced her departure via Twitter on Tuesday, writing (in part), "Breaking News: It's my penultimate 'World Sport' show! I'm leaving after 11 great years at CNN...". She went on to tweet that she is moving into freelance work.

Prior to joining CNN, Reid played on the professional Women's Tennis Tour for two years. From 1994 to 1997, she represented Great Britain in international tennis events and she completed at the Junior Wimbledon championships in 1994 and 1995.

Anchor Anna Coren and meteorologist Guillermo Arduino made note of Reid's departure on World Report, Wednesday.

During her final sign-off, Candy Reid listed some of her personal highlights during her time at CNN, the biggest being the chance to interview Roger Federer on several occasions.
