We wrote the following message on Twitter to announce his retirement:

"This is my 20th season as a professional player and it has been 20 years since I signed my first professional contract, so it feels like the right time to announce that I will retire at the end of the season.

"Having played 15 years in the Premier League, and won every single trophy possible, I feel like I have achieved everything I set out to achieve.

"I will continue to work hard at Arsenal to hopefully win one more trophy this season, then I am looking forward to seeing what life holds for me off the pitch."

Twitter paid tribute to the 36-year-old, who will go down in history as of the great goalkeepers.

A true legend of the game. Happy retirement, Petr.
