Real Madrid keeper Dudek announces retirement

Real Madrid goalkeeper Jerzy Dudek has retired after featuring in last night's 8-1 thrashing of Almeria.

As a tribute to the former Liverpool No1, Dudek's Madrid team-mates escorted him back to the bench forming a corridor as he received a standing ovation from the entire Bernabeu faithful.

"When my teammates and friends formed the corridor... I don't have words to describe it," said Dudek after the match, according to Madrid's official website.

"Three weeks ago I already knew I was going to play, but I didn't expect it to be so moving."
