Chelsea’s squad are continuing their pre-season training in Los Angeles, but have proved that they’re able sportsmen away from the football pitch.
Well, at least one player is!
During a recovery session the guys decided to have a swimming race in what appears to be an Olympic-size pool, potentially in preparation for the summer’s games in Rio.
On the start line are Ruben Loftus-Cheek (lane one) John Terry (lane two) Gary Cahill (lane three) Nemanja Matic (lane four) and Asmir Begovic (lane five).
While Loftus-Cheek and Matic miss the starting signal and fail to jump, skipper JT got away clean and—as if his competitive spirit was ever in doubt—the veteran centre-back ends up winning the race.
We don’t know if Terry’s time is good enough for an Olympic call-up, but in any case, we are excited about seeing Antonio Conte’s boys test their mettle in another one of the Games’ many disciplines!
