How would you celebrate winning the Champions League? A song and a dance? Maybe a few beers? Repeatedly hug N'Golo Kante's perfect little head?

Or... how about a shave?

Chelsea midfielder Jorginho went for option four after leading the Blues to glory at the expense of Manchester City, and in one of the most bizarre post-match interviews you'll ever seen, he actually let TNT Sports' Fred Caldeira do the honours for him.

After answering questions about the game, Jorginho urged Caldeira to pull out a beard trimmer and allowed the reporter to go to town on his face, and it turns out that this was actually part of a bet which the Italian made with Caldeira earlier in the competition.

Back in April, after Chelsea beat Porto in the quarter-final, Jorginho agreed that he would allow Caldeira to shave his beard off live on camera if they won in the final...but only if he could shave off the reporter's moustache as well.

A few weeks later, Porto's Estadio do Dragao went from a stadium to a barbershop real quick.

Earlier in the celebrations, before he lost ten years off his age, Jorginho gave an interview with Chelsea TV in which he made no secret of just how much he could not believe he was a European champion.

"How can you find words to describe it?" he said. "One word? Incredible, amazing, unbelievable.

"We deserved it because we have worked so hard. We always believed in ourselves and we never gave up. This group is amazing because everyone cheers for each other. The spirit of this group is just incredible.

"They deserve it. Everyone deserves it, the staff, the medical staff, the kitmen. the people in the office, the media team, everyone. Everyone helps each other and the support we had from the fans as well, this amazing club deserves it."
