Former Middlesbrough striker Mido has retired from the game at the age of just thirty.

Mido was signed by then manager Gareth Southgate from Tottenham Hotspur for £6m in August 2007.

The Egyptian who was capped more than fifty times for his country then managed just a solitary game during a stint with Barnsley last season.
