Chelsea FC came to Sydney as part of its post-season tour. It all started with a riveting press conference

Talk, Mr Bond? I expect you to die!

The press conference was just a pre-amble to the most important part of Chelsea’s visit to Sydney… the appearance of the “His ‘n Hers” Chelsea mascots!

The long-sleeved Chelsea shirt under the short-sleeved Chelsea shirt, matched with the Chelsea scarf and Chelsea beanie. No goalkeeping gloves. Could be wearing Chelsea shorts under his jeans.

There were Sydney FC supporters there too, along with Chelsea supporters who had followed the club ever since… oh who has time for cheap shots.

And now, photos from the game:
