Arsenal number one Petr Cech worked as a linesman after helping the Gunners to beat Newcastle at St James' Park earlier in the weekend.

The ex-Czech international shared a picture on his Instagram of him officiating as an assistant referee in a grassroots game.

The 36-year-old appeared to be officiating in a girls' Sunday League clash hours after playing full 90 minutes in the 2-1 win over Rafa Benitez side.

Cech was dressed in a jeans short and a top as he was called into action for the grassroots game that took place on Sunday.

But the former Chelsea goalkeeper seemed to embrace the role as he showed-off a snap of himself signalling a player in an offside position.

Cech simply captioned the picture: "#sundayleague #grassrootsfootball".
