Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech has paid tribute to Ryan Mason after the Hull City midfielder was forced to retire from football due to injury.

Mason suffered a skull fracture during a collision with Chelsea defender Gary Cahill in a match last January and the former Tottenham player, who has not played since, confirmed his retirement on Tuesday.

Cech has worn protective headwear during games ever since he sustained a similar injury after colliding with Stephen Hunt during a Premier League match between Chelsea and Reading in 2006.

The veteran goalkeeper has supported Mason throughout his attempt to return to the pitch and Cech paid tribute to the 26-year-old via social media.

Yesterday was a sad day for one incredible young man, Cech wrote on Twitter. Ryan Mason.

Although his story didn`t finish with ultimate happy ending, his determination, attitude and bravery he`s shown during his recovery is something to be admired and an inspiration for others!

All the best Ryan.

Mason won a single cap for England, against Italy in 2015, and made 70 appearances for Tottenham, where he had come through the youth system, before joining Hull.
