Terry is the first player to achieve this feat since the 1992/93 season, when Manchester United legend Gary Pallister became the first non-goalkeeper to win a Premier League medal after playing every minute of the 38 league games.

The former England international has been a rock at the heart of the defence for champions this season and was named in the PFA Team of the Year as he helped clinch a first league title for the West London outfit in five years.

It was also a record breaking season for the Blues as they became the most dominant champions in Premier League history for the longest number of consecutive days at the top of the table, beating the previous 262 days record set by United in the 1993/94 season by 12 days.
