Chelsea legend Petr Cech is set to return to competitive sport after signing for ice hockey club Guildford Phoenix.

The Czech, who retired from professional football last year and has since been working in a backroom role at Stamford Bridge, is a childhood fan of the sport.

And after training with another ice hockey team Guildford Flames, the veteran has signed with a fourth-tier club as a goalkeeper.
