Chelsea fans out for victory tour

The streets were awash with blue and white on Sunday as thousands of football fans turned out to cheer Chelsea players during a victory parade.

Crowds of supporters watched captain John Terry and his teammates celebrating on an open-deck bus through west London.

The parade set off from Stamford Bridge stadium and made its way along Fulham Road, King's Road and New King's Road.

Chelsea beat Portsmouth 1-0 in the FA Cup final at Wembley yesterday to clinch its first ever FA Cup and League double.

Manager Carlo Ancelotti's side won the Barclays Premier League with an 8-0 win over Wigan.

Didier Drogba was earlier spotted sporting a bra, which was assumed to be a reference to the "two cups" won by the club.

The team held the trophies aloft as the bus parade passed cheering and clapping fans.

Soaking up the atmosphere, the players stopped to sing and chant as they jumped for joy and waved at the crowds.

Ancelotti started off the singing, backed up by Lampard and Terry, who told supporters they had been "fantastic".

With masses of hats, flags and shirts on show, along with the odd blue wig, the Chelsea colours dominated both on the bus and below.
