Ramires illness 'nothing serious'

Midfielder Ramires has taken to Instagram to reassure supporters after missing Chelsea's title-clinching victory on Sunday through illness.

The Brazilian was named in the starting line-up for the 1-0 win over Crystal Palace, but withdrew late before kick-off and departed for hospital with a kidney problem.

Ramires wrote on Instagram on Monday: "I was very sick yesterday minutes before the match because of a renal complication, but I'm well and home with my family.

"Thank God it was nothing serious and I will be fully recovered in a few weeks.

"Thank you to all that sent me messages and were with me. I would like to thank the Chelsea's medical team for the exceptional job.

"I was sad not to be part of the party on the pitch, but very pleased with the title, the only English title I had left to concur. Congratulations Chelsea!"
