Basking in reflected glory?

The internet has responded in fine form to the Chelsea skipper, John Terry, donning his full kit to receive the Champions League trophy last night. If you’ve been on planet Mars for the past few weeks you will not know that Terry was suspended from taking part in this crucial fixture due to an extremely stupid tackle in the semi against Barcelona that saw him receiving a sending off. However, last night, when Chelsea were the ultimate victors on penalties, Terry changed out of his suit and into his kit to go and receive his winner’s medal and lift the trophy.

My 3 favourite tweets are:

During the match – a spectator

Steve Fitzpatrick @fitzpas
“Doing a John Terry today, going to don my full chef outfit to carve the lamb – after my wife has spent three hours cooking the food.”
 
David Hepworth @davidhepworth
“Bet John Terry was one of those kids who insisted on blowing out the candles on other people’s cakes.”
 
and
 

After the match – taking part in the celebrations

Football Jokes @footballfunnys
“Why is everyone criticising John Terry for wearing his kit? He needs to keep his suit clean for court.”
 

And am I the only person who sees his inclusion in the squad for the Euros and Rio’s absence as sending out the wrong message???
