Petr Cech proves he's the nicest man in football - again

Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech has once again re-affirmed that he is a man of the people by travelling on a train - just like you or I.

Given Petr Cech has just broken the record for the number of clean sheets by a Premier League goalkeeper, the Czech stopper could be forgiven for lauding it up in a chauffeured Mercedes.

Instead the former Chelsea goalkeeper apparently prefers the crowded and congested commuter trains as his means of transport.

Dressed in a suit and open collared shirt, complete with glasses and a receding hairline, Cech did not look out of place amongst the hundreds of fellow commuters on the South West trains service from London Waterloo.

The celebrity sighting comes as Arsene Wenger granted his team a mini-winter break ahead of their FA Cup tie with Sunderland at the Emirates.

Petr Cech previously endeared himself to the masses when he uploaded a series of videos of himself drumming along to a number of Nirvana songs.

The 33-year-old employed his musical talents for a charitable cause last month when he drummed along to a number of classic Christmas songs in aid of the Arsenal Foundation.

Cech broke David James' Premier League clean sheet record with the 170th shut-out of his career in Arsenal's 2-0 win over Bournemouth.

Arsenal have been boosted by the news that Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez is available for selection following his lengthy injury lay-off, and could make an appearance in Saturday's FA Cup third round tie with Sunderland.
